Inter's Dejan Stankovic delighted with Scudetto victory

Midfielder finds it tough until the very end...

Inter midfielder Dejan Stankovic could not hide his joy in playing his part in winning the Nerazzurri's fifth consecutive Scudetto.

The 31-year-old said that the Beneamata found it tough, but can now celebrate all their hard work.

"It was harder to win than in previous seasons, and it is for this reason that it is sweeter to win," the Serbian told
TMW. "We can now celebrate after a fight to the end.

"Roma were involved in a great championship, but I think we deserved to win in the end. My compliments go out to the Giallorossi for all their efforts."

Stankovic also expressed his opinion about Roma counterpart Daniele De Rossi.

"'Lele' is a great player. He knows what I think of him," he said. "He is one of those players that keeps Roma going."

The Nerazzurri defeated Siena 1-0 to claim their 18th Scudetto.
