Inter have won the Italian Serie A for the fifth time on a row on Sunday 16th May with a small 1-0 victory over relegated team Siena. The match was played at Siena’s Artemio Franchi Stadium, and the only goal was scored by Inter striker Milito. The team is presently managed by Jose Mourinho, the coach who has won the league with every club he managed (Porto 2002/03 & 2003/04, Chelsea 2004/05 & 2005/06, Inter 2008/09 & 2009/10), as well as both the UEFA Cup and the Champions League with Porto. Mourinho can add another Champions League medal to his collection of honours if he wins the Final against Bayern Munich on Saturday 22nd May. No team has been able to take Inter off the top of the Italian league for these past four seasons, with the 2005/06 season being awarded to them despite being won by Juventus.
In the celebrations of the 18th Scudetto, Inter presented the new away shirt for the 2010/11 season. The shirt is inspired from the shirt worn in the 1964/65 season, which was the last time Inter won the Champions League (also won it in 1963/64). One of the nicknames of the Italian Champions is the Serpents. A very attractive and eye-catching, black and blue serpent appears on the left side of the shirt. The Nike Swoosh on the right side of the chest is blue, while the sponsor logo of Pirelli appears in black in the centre. The complementary shorts are also white, with a blue band on each side, while the socks are white with black and blue details. In the manufacturing process of each shirt, Nike used material from 8 recycled plastic bottles. The shirts are made lighter and wick away even more perspiration. The new Inter shirt went on sale on the 17th May.
