The after-match celebrations on the pitch of the Stadio Olimpico showed just how much Milan's 18th title meant to everybody at the club and just how much there is a sense of belonging to the red and black stripes.
No other team deserved the scudetto this season. The Rossoneri surveyed the rest of Serie A from their lofty perch from November onwards, and never looked like being toppled.
