Inter win Serie A

12:39 pm on 17 May 2009

Inter Milan have won a fourth straight Serie A Italian football title despite not playing when nearest challengers AC Milan lost 2-1 at Udinese.

Second-placed Milan trail Inter, who host Siena tonight, by seven points but the Rossonero have only two matches left to play.

Milan's defeat meant that Inter boss Jose Mourinho has won the scudetto in his first season in Italian football after joining in June last year.

It is Mourinho's fifth title in seven years in three different countries having claimed the Portuguese crown with Porto in 2003 and 2004 and the English Premier League trophy in 2005 and 2006 with Chelsea.
