Inter Milan players taunted Roma captain Francesco Totti during their open top bus parade yesterday. Celebrating pipping Roma to the Scudetto with Inter's fans, the open top bus carried a banner declaring: "Totti instead of sucking your thumb why don't you stick your finger up your ****."

Along with winding up Totti, the gesture also is a sure sign that Mario Balotelli is again back in the good books of Inter's senior players. It was Balotelli who was kicked by Totti during the Coppa Italia final and led to the Roma captain's dismissal.
