“Juventus dominated Serie A for 9 years, but now Inter are back:
Former legendary Marseille, AC Milan and Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly believes Inter have broken Juventus’ recent hold on Serie A.
Speaking to Turin newspaper La Stampa in an interview published in today’s print edition, the Frenchman felt that the Bianconeri’s monopoly over the Italian elite was now over thanks to the Nerazzurri.
Juventus set a Serie A record by winning nine Scudetti in a row, always appearing to be able to find the most quality or result needed to beat their rivals for almost a decade.
The quality of the Bianconeri was at the heart of their dominance during this period, but the relative weakness of their main rivals also helped them, with Inter appearing far from being able to push them for much of their streak. victories.
Last season the Nerazzurri peaked in their growth over a span of a few years, while Juventus stumbled and eventually finished far behind Inter who won the Scudetto.
This season the trend appears to have continued and Desailly believes the Nerazzurri have knocked Juventus off their perch.
“Juve monopolized Serie A for nine years and killed the ambitions of other teams,” he said. “Now a round is over and Inter are back, but with the desire to be more able to compete in Europe.”
He added that âMilan are trying to get back to where they fell, even if they disappointed in the Champions League. They are scheming, but always struggle to keep their best players. “
