Simy’s Crotone relegated back to Serie B after Inter defeat

Simy Nwankwo’s Crotone became the first team to be relegated in the 2020-21 Serie A season after they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Inter Milan on Saturday.

The Pythagoreans spent just one season in the top-flight and would be heading back to the Serie B after they were condemned to their 26th league defeat of the season thanks to second-half goals from Christian Eriksen and Achraf Hakimi at the Stadio Ezio Scida.

With four games left to conclude the league this campaign, Crotone remain at the bottom of the table with 18 points from 34 matches.

The Nigerian international could not fired blank in the entire duration and thus, failed to add to his tally of 19 goals after 34 league appearances for Serse Cosmi’s side.

Following Saturday’s disappointment, Simy will shift his focus to helping Crotone end the 2020-21 season on a high with games against Roma, Hellas Verona, Benevento and Fiorentina still to come.

However, 28-year-old surpassed Obafemi Martins’ record of 28 goals for Inter Milan in Serie A, to become the highest scoring Nigerian player in the history of the Italian league with 29 goals.
