Internazionale football club
The history of FC Internazionale Milano is a turbulent one, with many highs and some lows along the way. The club was founded in 1908 following a breakaway from its parent club AC Milan. It is commonly believed that the dispute was about Milan focusing exclusively on Italian players. As per the wishes of its founders, the new club was named Internazionale, thus signaling it was open to players of all nationalities.
It didn’t take long for the club to start walking the road to greatness, as the first Scudetto came only two years after their foundation. Inter would cement its role in Italian football by winning six more in the next 50 years.
With Roberto Mancini as head coach in 2004, he led them to three consecutive Scudettos (including the fantastic record in the 2006–07 season with 30 wins out of 38 games, collecting 97 points in total), before departing in 2008. In 2010, Inter became the first Italian team to complete a Treble by winning Serie A, the Italian Cup and the Champions League.
