Inter Milan fans celebrate 20th scudetto in city centre

Last weekend, Inter Milan became Serie A champions for the 20th time in their history following a win against bitter rivals AC Milan at the San Siro. The celebrations have continued all week and culminated in an open-top bus parade through the centre of Milan where players, staff and fans all celebrated the triumph together.

The party in the centre of Milan started after Inter defeated Torino 2-0 a the San Siro and continued long into the night. Thousands of Inter fans lined the streets and celebrated with flares, flags and fireworks with supporters keen to rub their title win in the faces of city rivals AC Milan, who now trail Inter by one title in historical success.

Fans dressed in the teams' colours of black and blue with the party finishing at the Piazza Duomo, a popular celebration spot in the city. Speaking to Reuters, one Inter Milan fan at the title party said:

“Almost more beautiful than the treble in 2010. The most beautiful Scudetto in my life of 70 years as an Inter fan. We are enjoying this incredible mania, right in front of the AC Milan supporters… there is nothing better than this.”

Earlier in the day, Inter Milan fans saw their team cruise to a 2-0 win over Torino. Hakan Calhanoglu scored two second half goals to secure the win which leaves Simone Inzaghi's men 19 points ahead of AC Milan in the Serie A table.

During the match, Inter fans unveiled a banner aimed at Juventus, Torino's city rivals. The banner depicted a giant Scudetto with the number 14 written on it. Underneath was a ‘+6' and two stars, which reflect the fact Inter now have two stars on their badge after winning 20 Serie A titles.

The number 14 was in reference to Inter's 14th title which they won in retrospect in 2006 following Juventus' relegation to Serie B for match fixing. The reason they unveiled it this week was because Milan Ultras taunted Inter last week by saying they had only won 19 titles on the pitch.
