Pioli: Milan believed in Scudetto triumph more than Inter

According to Stefano Pioli, Milan’s Scudetto success was merited since they were more consistent than Inter and showed more belief than their bitter rivals.

Milan concluded an 11-year wait for a Serie A title with a 3-0 win over Sassuolo on Sunday, rendering Inter’s 3-0 win over Sampdoria at home irrelevant.

The Rossoneri finished two points ahead of Inter to win their first title since the Italian Super Cup in 2016, which they won 1,976 days ago.

Pioli’s team went 15 games without losing in the last five games of the season.

Their final score of 88 points was the second-highest in the three-point-per-win period.

Pioli was full of praise for his players following a thrilling title battle with Inter that went down to the last game – the first time in Serie A since 2009-10.

He told DAZN:

“They are phenomenal.

“I am happy for them, myself, the fans, and the club. This Scudetto makes us all very happy.

“We showed more consistency than Inter. The last game we lost was against Spezia in January, and even then, we shouldn’t have lost it.

“The team never gave up; all the players were fantastic. We fully deserved this Scudetto because we believed in it more. We are a strong team, and I have a great staff around me.”

In Milan’s title-clinching triumph over Sassuolo, Olivier Giroud scored twice, and Franck Kessie added a third before halftime.

Rafael Leao contributed to two of those goals and has been involved in at least one goal in each of his last six league outings, including three of his own.

The Portugal international was named Serie A’s Most Valuable Player for 2021-22.

While Pioli was named Coach of the Year.

“I have the players and the club to thank for that,” Pioli said. “This award is for them. Without them, what we achieved would not have been possible.”
