Hernan Crespo has revealed how a carpeting from president Massimo Moratti inspired Inter Milan to this season's championship triumph.
"That triggered something. It convinced us that we had to give more."
Crespo enjoyed a stunning campaign and he's delighted to have the opportunity of gaining more honours after Inter agreed to sign him from Chelsea.
"It was a season of joy for me and it is the culmination of many sacrifices," he added.
"I wanted to win something important in Italy. I had been chasing this Scudetto for a long time. To have won it with Inter is of great importance.
"I have always said winning helps you win. You can bet on Inter next year, because we know what it means to win a championship.
"We know how to face these situations. We know the right mental approach to face certain situations. No one needs to explain to you how to do it and everything is easier because of this.
"This is another reason why I'm convinced it will be an extraordinary season next term."
