Italian Media Highlight Reasons For Inter’s Displacement Of Juventus At The Top Of Serie A Since 2019

Inter have reached the summit of Italian football over the past couple seasons, and in doing so they managed to push their Supercoppa Italiana rivals Juventus from their perch.

According to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, this owes a lot to the work of Nerazzurri CEO Beppe Marotta at re-shaping the club.

Marotta had guided the Bianconeri for the better part of a decade, delivering eight consecutive Scudetti, multiple Coppa Italia titles, and two Champions League titles.

In December of 2018, however, the executive made the switch to the Nerazzurri, and with this move the two teams’ fortunes appeared to reverse.

In the summer of 2019 Marotta brought in Antonio Conte, the same coach who had brought initial success to Juventus in his reign in Turin, as well as players like Nicolo Barella and Romelu Lukaku.

In the Italian coach’s first season in charge Inter were not quite able to topple the Bianconeri, finishing a point behind Maurizio Sarri’s side at the top of the Serie A table.

However, the team appeared to be headed in the right direction just as their great Turin rivals looked to be losing some sense of direction.

Last campaign, Conte guided the Nerazzurri to the Serie A title, and even with the departures of Conte as well as Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi, Marotta and new coach Simone Inzaghi have steered the Nerazzurri back to the top of the Serie A table at the moment.

Juventus will still feel that they have every chance of winning a trophy in the Supercoppa match tomorrow, but in the Serie A table it is clear that where once there was a clear gap between them and Inter, now the teams’ places have switched.
