Inter Milan retain Serie A title

Inter Milan retained their Serie A title after second-placed AC Milan lost at Udinese on Saturday.


Reuters - Inter Milan retained their Serie A title with three games to spare after second-placed AC Milan put in a weak performance to lose 2-1 at Udinese on Saturday.


Inter’s triumph, in coach Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge, is their fourth straight scudetto and their 17th overall.


The champions, who will celebrate their success in Sunday’s home match with Siena (1830 GMT), hold a seven-point lead with Milan only having two games left.


Milan captain Paolo Maldini, who retires at the end of the season, had a night to forget on his 900th appearance for the Rossoneri.


The 40-year-old pulled down Antonio Floro Flores on 31 minutes to allow Gaetano D’Agostino to fire home a penalty and then failed to clear a corner before Cristian Zapata slammed the ball in at the far post early in the second half.


Massimo Ambrosini headed in for Milan in stoppage time.
