Romelu Lukaku is confident that Inter Milan are on the right path after finishing Serie A as runners-up to Juventus. A 0-2 win at Atalanta on the final day of the season secured the runners-up spot for Antonio Conte's men, whose fine late-season form meant they finished only a point behind Juve, who in contrast, stumbled towards the finishing post.

Productive debut season at Inter for Lukaku

Lukaku scored 23 goals in 36 top-flight outings in his debut campaign for the Nerazzurri following an €80million switch from Manchester United and hopes the best is yet to come.

"Serie A is finished but we're still building and going the right way," the Belgium striker wrote in an Instagram post. "Thank you for supporting the team throughout this season. To all of my team-mates, you guys have been wonderful. I would give my all for you guys every single day."

Mourinho's points tally matched

Inter's final haul of 82 points matched their title-winning total under José Mourinho in 2009-10. It is the first time they have earned in excess of 79 points without winning the Scudetto.
