Lukaku tells Ibrahimovic to ‘bow down’ after Inter Milan win Serie A title

  Romelu Lukaku has taken a dig at Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after Inter Milan were crowned Serie A champions on Sunday. Inter were confirmed champions with four games left, after Atalanta and Sassuolo played out a 1-1 draw. Antonio Conte’s side overhauled Ibrahimovic’s AC Milan earlier this season, before going 13 points clear. Lukaku and the Swedish striker, who were former Manchester United team-mates, clashed in the Coppa Italia quarter-final back in February, trading insults and confronting each other before both men received one-match bans. Inter won that game 2-1 and Lukaku believes he’s had the last laugh over Ibrahimovic. Lukaku wrote on Twitter: “The real god has crowned the king!” “Now bow down. King of Milano,” the striker added, with a winking face and ...

Inter Milan Could Clinch Serie A title this Weekend

  Inter Milan could be Italian champions this weekend for the first time in over a decade. Antonio Conte’s men are away to bottom club Crotone on Saturday. Victory there would see them put one hand on a title they last won in 2010. If they win and second-placed Atalanta fail to claim all three points at Sassuolo on Sunday, Inter will clinch their 19th Serie A crown with four games to go. Inter could also be crowned champions with a draw if Atalanta lose. But other results would have to go their way. Nezazzuri finished one point behind Juventus last year and also lost the Europa League final to Sevilla.

Vidal and Barella scores as Inter beat Juventus

  Antonio Conte guided Inter Milan to victory against his former club Juventus as the Nerazzurri moved level on points with AC Milan at the top of Serie A. Arturo Vidal's headed first-half opener was his first top-flight goal in Italy for almost six years, having last scored for Juventus in May 2015. Nicolo Barella, who created the first, made it two with a fine run and finish. Champions Juventus were lacklustre at the San Siro and remain fifth. Andrea Pirlo's side are seven points adrift of the two Milan clubs and AC Milan can edge clear at the summit again if they win at Cagliari on Monday. Conte, who guided Juve to three Serie A titles between 2012 and 2014 to begin the Turin club's run of nine successive scudetti, had failed to beat his former club in two previou...

Conte Reacts To Inter Milan Defeat Against Real Madrid

Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte has reacted to the 2-0 defeat against Real Madrid on matchday 4 of the Champions League. Conte feels the referee Anthony Taylor killed the game with the decision to give Arturo Vidal a marching order.

He was given a yellow card for his complaints and then handed another yellow card just moments later and given his marching orders by the English referee. “Honestly, don’t talk about refereeing, even if many times the referee must be intelligent and the game is like that,” he began his post-match press conference at San Siro following the de...

Will Atalanta play into Salah & Mane’s hands?

Indeed, that query is undoubtedly subjective but Group D — comprising Liverpool, Ajax, Atalanta and Midtjylland — seemed more exciting than the former — containing Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan and Borussia Monchengladbach….just. While it’s played out differently in reality so far, with the Ukraine and German side respectively sitting in first and second place, Atalanta vs Ajax last week finally saw Group D come alive...which has whet the appetite before the Serie A side host the Reds on Tuesday.
