Milito Fires Inter Milan to Serie A Title

Diego Milito scored the only goal at Siena this afternoon, 12 minutes into the second half as Inter Milan claimed their fifth straight and eighteenth overall Serie A title.

Despite letting Roma back into the title race in the second half of the campaign, and then allowing i Giallorossi to top Serie A after 34 games, Inter Milan have been the best team in Italy this season.

Roma will look at a poor start to the season and then suffering a home defeat at the hands of Sampdoria, despite dominating the first half in that game as reasons for finishing second this season.

Inter Milan, coached by Jose Mourinho have now completed the domestic double, having won the Coppa Italia against Roma in the final 11 days ago. Next Saturday they face Bayern Munich in the final of the Champions League as they look to become only the sixth team to complete such a feat. Barcelona became the fifth team to do so only last season.

Jose Mourinho has now won Serie A in both of his two seasons in charge of the Italian side. He had previously won back-to-back Premier League titles with Chelsea and before that, consecutive Portuguese Liga titles with FC Porto. Mourinho has won 6 league titles in the last 8 years.
