Second Scudetto Would Be Vindication For Inter Owners Suning, Italian Media Argue

Inter owners Suning have a chance to guide the club to a second successive Scudetto under their watch, and it would be a major vindication of how they have run the club.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who argue that the Chinese company can prove their critics wrong if the Nerazzurri are successful in defending last season’s Scudetto crown.

Inter looked some way off of being capable of winning the Scudetto when Suning took over at the club in 2016, but the Chinese company went to work improving the team at virtually all levels.

Numerous key players were signed, in addition to the appointments of Luciano Spalletti and then Antonio Conte on the bench and the hiring of Beppe Marotta from Juventus to take over behind the scenes.

Last season, Conte and the crop of players assembled for him finally managed to topple Juventus at the summit of the Serie A table to win the Scudetto for the first time in eleven years, a culmination of Suning’s years of works.

This success looked to already be in jeopardy over the summer, however, and partly because of instability at Suning themselves.

The Nerazzurri experienced significant problems financially which were exacerbated by loss of revenues from the pandemic, and this was made into even more of a problem due to the debt and liquidity crises at the parent company of the owners.

The exit of Conte as head coach and then the financially necessary sales of Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku, as well as the loss of Christian Eriksen through health problems which the company could do nothing about, led many to believe that Suning were no longer able to keep Inter afloat.

However, the work done over the summer to make up for these losses has kept the team at a very high level indeed, with new coach Simone Inzaghi and a raft of new signings seeing the Nerazzurri guarantee themselves the status of “winter champions.”

There are still many games to go before the Nerazzurri can clinch a second Scudetto, not to mention their pursuits in the Coppa Italia and in the Champions League where they have reached the knockout rounds for the first time in a decade.

Should Inter manage to win a second Scudetto under Suning, however, the Chinese company will feel that they have done their job in their running of the team.
