told InterTV.

“Beating the team that have won the Scudetto nine years in a row and created a significant gap, had great importance for me, in terms of self-esteem, self-awareness.

“It could turn out to be a boomerang, to make ourselves presumptuous and excessively sure of our means but did well to capitalize on that game in the right way and continuing on our path.”

Conte admits that he expected a tight battle for the Serie A title, but now that his men have shown their dominance in the domestic competition, he sees their performance as an extraordinary achievement.

“Honestly, I didn’t imagine that the balance of power could change so much after one round,” Conte continued. “I had predicted a very tight championship and it actually was, except for Inter, who took their own path and has reached the finish line.

“One team, ours, have done extraordinary things and have detached ourselves from the others. We have done something unexpected, also in terms of how it was done.”
