Inter Milan President Beppe Marotta feels that it is a “point of pride” for the Nerazzurri to have the second star on their shirts after last season’s Serie A title.

Speaking at an event, via FCInterNews, the Nerazzurri President called the club a “point of reference” for the region of Lombardy.

Something will be different for Inter next season.

For the first time ever, the Nerazzurri will head into a new campaign with two stars above the club crest on their shirt.

That is something that Inter have been chasing for a long time.

After going more than a decade without winning a Serie A title, the Nerazzurri did so in the 2020-21 season.

That took Inter’s total number of titles to nineteen – one away from the twenty that it would take to put the second star on their shirts.

Then in the two seasons prior to last one, Inter missed out on the title.

In the 2021-22 season, it was by the narrowest of margins. Inter allowed a significant advantage from the winter slip to city rivals AC Milan, who pipped them to the title on the final day of the campaign.

Then in the 2022-23 season, Inter were miles off of champions Napoli in the table.

Beppe Marotta: “Second Star A Point Of Pride For Inter Milan”

Last season, though, there was no stopping Inter.

The Nerazzurri were the clear standout team in Serie A. They amassed a similarly huge lead in the table to Napoli the previous campaign.

Therefore, it never looked in too much doubt that Inter would have the Scudetto on their shirts for the 2024-25 season.

And not just that. Inter have finally reached the second star after chasing it for a long time.

Inter President Marotta declared that “It’s a source of pride to represent a club that’s been part of this area since 1908.”

He called Inter “a point of reference.”

“For its trophy cabinet. For all the achievements that it’s had over the years.”

“Today we celebrate an extraordinary season,” Marotta said. “Because it is one with victories in the Supercoppa Italiana and the league title that brought us the second star.”

“It’s a point of great pride for us to be able to wear it,” the Inter President declared.

“We represent the areas of Milan and Lombardy with great pride, and great struggle.”
