Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was delighted with the battling win against Crotone.
A deflected Christian Eriksen strike and Achraf Hakimi’s goal proved enough.
Conte said, “I think our campaign comes from a constant growth from the team in every area, including mentality, the sharing of a vision, and experiencing it intensely. Now those who play or are on the bench, have still formed a team made of granite.
“We know that we can remain in the history of Inter because we are effectively bringing down a nine-year reign. This is satisfying and the players deserve congratulations.”
Now the Scudetto could be mathematically secured on Sunday if Atalanta fail to beat Sassuolo.
“I had told the lads after the Verona game they’d have a day off. We need to spend time with our families, as it has been an intense time.
“We know that we’re on the verge and are quite relaxed about it. I don’t think it’s right to depend on someone else, so we’ve got such a big gap that we know it’s all our own work and we don’t have to thank anyone for a result. It’s all still in our hands.”
