Inter Milan captain Lautaro Martinez feels that winning the Serie A title this season is “like a dream” after all the team’s hard work. 

The Nerazzurri captain spoke to Italian broadcaster DAZN, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri clinched the title with a derby win over AC Milan.

Now it’s official: Inter are champions of Italy for the 2023-24 season.

It had looked a matter of “when” rather than “if” for quite a few weeks – if not months.

But the question was always going to be which match would finally confirm the Nerazzurri’s status.

And it proved to be a very special one indeed. Inter faced off against their city rivals AC Milan at the San Siro, in a match that was nominally a Rossoneri home game.

And Inter were able to celebrate the title under the noses of their city rivals.

It was a dramatic derby that saw Inter go 2-0 up, before Milan pulled one back. Then in the finale, three players were sent off – one for Inter, and two for Milan.

But after referee Andrea Colombo blew his final whistle, it was no longer about the derby.

It was about Inter getting to finally celebrate the fruits of months upon months of relentless consistency and quality in the league. The players and staff stormed the pitch to celebrate.

Lautaro Martinez: Serie A Title “Like A Dream”

“I feel like crying,” Inter captain Martinez said during the celebrations.

“Because this is like a dream. We suffered a lot, and we had to work hard,” the 26-year-old continued.

“I dedicate this to my family, my teammates, and the fans.”

Of clinching the title in the derby, Martinez said that “I told the guys that we’re in a situation we’ve never experienced before. We had to take advantage of it.”

“The stadium was all ours tonight,” the Inter captain declared.

“Since I’ve arrived, we’ve been winning trophies. And now we have to keep going on this path.

Meanwhile, as far as his potentially signing a contract situation soon, Martinez wasn’t too concerned at the moment.

“Let’s hope so,” the Argentine said.

“But right now, I want to enjoy this party.”

“We’ve worked hard all the way starting in Japan,” Martinez said, referring to Inter’s preseason tour. “We changed twelve played in the summer. We deserve it.”

“Now I want to celebrate it,” he concluded.
