Good interview with Diego Milito in Gazetta Dello Sport in which he touches on number of topics.
Here are some of the highlights from the interview:
“I’m coming along well. It has been a long road to recovery. Let’s see if I make it back to training with the team in the pre-season in Pinzolo. I hope I can get back to playing as soon as possible to repay the fans for the affection they’ve shown towards me. What do I remember from that night on 14 February? It’s hard to explain. It was a sad day, the first serious injury I’ve suffered, but the affection so many people have shown towards me meant I immediately focused on preparing to come back.”
“I’m really suffering over not being able to muck in and give my team-mates a hand,” said the Argentine on SkySport24, it’s been hard. I’m sure they’ll give it everything until the very end to get into Europe and I’m certain they can do it.”
This season Inter have had to deal with an amazing number of injuries, the last of these being to Javier Zanetti:
“Pupi will be back as soon as he can, because he’s just not like any normal player, his character will help him a lot and I’m sure he’ll be back before many other players. It’s been a bad year because of the injuries. I think our season can be summed up by Zanetti’s injury, as he’s someone who had never had a serious one.”
The Nerazzurri striker went on to speak about Andea Stramaccioni and sees the future of the club involving him:
“If he’s still Inter coach next season we’ll have a great campaign.” It was almost as if he was giving his blessing. And Cassano? “I get on very well with him. He’s a great guy. I hope I’ll be able to link up with him at pre-season training.”
He also commented on Leonardo:
“I’d take him back because first of all he’s a great man, as well as being a great manager.” Get Leo back, find Antonio, confirm Strama. And what about his own future? “Is there a chance I might leave Inter? No, at the moment that’s impossible. There’s no chance of that before 2014, I’ll be here this year unless the club gets rid of me.”
After a difficult season, Inter will try and start off again with Mauro Icardi:
“He’s a great striker, obviously he’s young and so we mustn’t put too much pressure on him. If he does join, he’ll find a squad that will help him to develop and I hope he can take over from me.
