Inter have ‘never’ played good football this season but would remain deserving Serie A champions, according to one leading Italian journalist.

The Nerazzurri are 11 points clear at the top of Serie A with eight games left, making them odds-on favourites to win the club’s first league title since 2010.

Antonio Conte is still receiving criticism for his tactical approach though, with some arguing Inter won’t make progress in the UEFA Champions League using such a style.

“Everyone is right to say Inter haven’t played well, they never have, but what’s the problem?” Mario Sconcerti asked in a column for Calciomercato.com today.

“The question should be whether they’re the best, and the answer is yes: Inter remain clearly the league’s best team this season.

“At that point people expand the debate by saying Inter’s style of play wouldn’t be suitable for playing in Europe, and this is also true.

“But it’s a criticism people are making at the wrong time, because Inter aren’t in Europe.

“You can speak for their past with the results in the Champions League, but nobody can predict the future.”

Inter have won 11 games in a row in Serie A and will seek a 12th consecutive victory when they play Napoli away from home on Sunday.

Conte’s side have become the first team in the league’s history to begin the second half of the season with 11 straight wins, breaking the previous record (10) set by Arrigo Sacchi’s AC Milan in 1990.

Inter will hope they can improve on their European failure next season, having been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League at the group stage in December.
