It was a battle right to the final round of the 2021-22 season, the Rossoneri knowing they needed at least a point away to Sassuolo to secure the title.
Inter got the better of Sampdoria by the same scoreline at San Siro, but it was not enough to retain the title that they had won under Antonio Conte last season.
“Congratulations to AC Milan. It’s been a brilliant contest this year. See you next season,” read their tweet.

It has still been a successful campaign for Inter in Simone Inzaghi’s debut season, as they won the Coppa Italia and the Supercoppa Italiana.
In both those cases, they defeated Juventus in the Final in extra time, while they also reached the Champions League Round of 16.
Meanwhile, Milan celebrated with a tweet quoting the chant that every Italian title winner does: ‘It’s us, it’s us, we are the Champions of Italy!’
