Inter Milan hero Diego Milito was ecstatic after his solitary goal earned his club their fifth straight Scudetto this afternoon. Milito struck in the 57th minute to seal a 1-0 triumph at Siena on the final day of the campaign.
The result saw Inter finish two points clear of Roma, who won 2-0 at Parma, and secures Inter's second title under coach Jose Mourinho. It also guarantees I Nerazzurri a place in the record books as the first team to win five back-to-back league titles since Juventus achieved the feat in the 1930s, and Milito was thrilled to have played a key role in the outcome.
"This is the most important goal of my career," he said. "We are happy, we deserved this." With Roma leading leading 2-0 at Parma at half-time, Inter fans had a nervous wait before Milito hit Inter's goal shortly before the hour mark. "Fortunately, the ball went in as we had wasted several chances in the first half," Milito added.
