Inter became Serie A champions because of their incredible unity as a team, according to Nerazzurri legend Andreas Brehme.

Antonio Conte’s side secured the club’s first league title in 11 years and demonstrated their superiority again on Wednesday, beating Roma 3-1 at San Siro.

Inter have had endless off-field problems to deal with this season but they did nothing to stop the team marching towards the scudetto in emphatic fashion.

“I’m obviously very happy for Conte and the team,” Inter’s former defender Brehme told on Thursday.

“They really deserved the scudetto.

“I have a feeling that this Inter team is truly united, and this is a quality which makes it similar to my Inter side.”

Brehme was part of one of Inter’s most dominant teams of all time, contributing to their record-breaking Serie A title triumph under Giovanni Trapattoni in 1989.

Asked if there were any similarities between Trapattoni and Conte, the German argued: “They’re both absolute leaders.

“The players follow both with real confidence.”

Brehme was also asked if there were any players from his Inter side which would have been suited to Conte’s current team.

“It’s really difficult to compare football from the 1990s with today,” he admitted.

“But if there was a time machine then Lothar Matthaus and I would be ready.”

Inter’s penultimate match of the season will see them visit arch rivals Juventus for the Derby d’Italia on Saturday.
