That injury that Diego Milito picked up in training the other day is more serious than initially thought as Inter have announced that Milito will be out for a month.
“It’s an injury we really could have done without,” Inter coach Walter Mazzarri told Tuttosport. “Just think that this week, in view of the international break, I was hoping to speed up his full integration in the side. Diego is a top player and there are very few like him around.”
Mazzarri will now have to reshuffle his pack once again, as he did for his side’s first few games of the season, placing his faith in the club’s latest Argentinean prodigy, Mauro Icardi. Mazzarri believes he is just the man to nurture the young striker.
“I began coaching in the youth academies, giving debuts to plenty of youngsters at Reggina who did not even know what Serie A was,” Mazzarri said. “And that’s without even mentioning [Lorenzo] Insigne. Just think of [Rolando] Bianchi — he exploded under me at Reggina and was sold to [Manchester] City for an exorbitant fee at the time. Attackers have always had the best seasons of their careers under me.”
