Antonio Conte arrived at Inter Milan in the beginning of the 2019-2020 Serie A season, and a lot of football enthusiasts weren’t sure of what was to come of the Milan team who had been trying to return to the pinnacle of football, but with the signing of Kolarov by Conte this window, his team appears to be coming together in a bid to end Juventus’s supremacy.

Conte has just completed the signing of experienced leftback Aleksandar Kolarov from Roma, and his signing would fill a gap that has been lacking for Conte.

Possessing one of the best set of attackers in the league, with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez leading the line, Inter managed to finish fourth in the league, earning qualification for the Champions League. They also got to the Europa League finals, before eventually losing to Europa League specialists, Sevilla.

Despite his attack being fully bolstered, his wingback position had always been lacking and the signing of both Achraf Hakimi and Alexandra Kolarov has shown his intent of trying to end Juventus domination.

Last season, Hakimi was widely regarded as one of the best fullbacks in the world for his exploits with Borussia Dortmund. He contributed a total of nine goals and ten assists in forty-five games, with his contribution being bettered by only Joshua Kimmich and Trent Alexander Arnold from right back.

Since moving to Roma from Man City in 2017, Kolarov has been one of the most consistent left backs in the league, while aging like fine wine. Capable of whipping in very dangerous crosses and scoring from set pieces. Kolarov scored 19 goals and had 20 assists in 132 games in all competitions for Roma.

Inter would begin their Serie A campaign on September 26, with their first opponent being Florentina. Conte would be hoping he can bank on his new fullbacks, coupled with his attack spearheaded by Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, in a mission to end Juventus’s domination and return Inter Milan to their rightful place.
