Antonio Conte has a long way still to go if he wants to become an Inter legend, according to former Nerazzurri goalkeeper Walter Zenga.

Inter won the Serie A title on Sunday for the first time since 2010, after they beat Crotone and Atalanta were held to a 1-1 draw at Sassuolo.

Conte’s achievement this season has earned him numerous comparisons to his predecessors at Inter, such as Giovanni Trapattoni and Jose Mourinho – who was sensationally appointed today as Roma’s next head coach.

However, Zenga wants people to stay calm for now and argued (as quoted by FcInterNews.it): “Conte needs to win a European trophy and he should stay at Inter to do precisely that.

“Only then could he be compared to coaches like Mourinho, Trapattoni and Helenio Herrera.”

Inter dominated Serie A during the second half of the season and managed to wrap up the scudetto last weekend with four games to spare.

The Nerazzurri’s fans were a little too excited on Sunday, when some disregarded social distancing guidelines to celebrate in the square by the Duomo in Milan.

Zenga doesn’t seem to blame them though, adding: “The fans’ celebrations are the result of all the disappointment they’ve suffered in recent years, most recently last season’s UEFA Europa League final.

“Inter blew everyone away in the league and they wouldn’t have won without the strength Conte gave them.”

Inter will be back in Serie A action when they host Sampdoria on Saturday.
