Inter Milan defender Stefan de Vrij feels that winning the Serie A title only makes the Nerazzurri hunger for more trophies.

The Dutchman spoke to InterTV during the Scudetto celebrations after beating AC Milan yesterday, via FCInterNews.

Now it’s official. Inter are Serie A champions for the 2023-24 season.

The Nerazzurri had previously won the title in the 2020-21 campaign.

The last couple seasons have seen the team fail to win the title. They lost in heartbreaking fashion on the last day of the season in 2021-22 – and then last season were miles behind Napoli.

But now, Inter have won their twentieth title. And with it, they can now sew the second star above the crests on their shirts.

A 2-1 win against Milan in a fiery derby was enough to make sure of that.

There were three red cards in what proved to be a dramatic conclusion to the evening.

But when referee Alessandro Colombo blew his final whistle, the Inter players and staff came streaming onto the pitch to celebrate not just the derby win, but the title.

Stefan De Vrij: Winning Serie A Title Makes Inter Hungry To Win More

“A Scudetto is always a Scudetto,” said Inter defender de Vrij.

“But being able to celebrate it with our fans will be even better.”

“We’re incredibly happy,” the Dutchman said.

Of winning the title with Simone Inzaghi, who was also his coach at Lazio, de Vrij remarked that “I’ve known him very well for a very long time.”

“He’s a great coach and I hope to continue working with him.”

De Vrij said of the title celebrations that “It’s a great feeling.”

“And it’s something that makes us want to keep on winning.”

Next season, Inter will aim to successfully defend this season’s crown. Moreover, they will want to get back on top with the Coppa Italia and make another run in the Champions League.
