MILITO: “WE’LL WIN AGAIN RIGHT AWAY.”
The Argentinian explains: “There are no clans at Inter.”
And on Destro: “I could already see that he would be great when he was here training.”
MILITO: THE UNTOUCHABLE
“At Inter there are no clans. Sorry for those who have left but if we win, I would go blond.”
Milan – L’Intoccabile: The Untouchable. Because the transfer market seems going around and around without touching Diego Milito, Prince of all, King of last season when he resurrected by scoring 24 goals.
Milito, a few weeks ago there is this headline in some newspaper: “Barca want Milito.”
“Never heard anything, really.”
A year ago, however, PSG were looking for you.
“I repeat when you find a place where you are feeling good, you can also said no.”
So is that the feeling of being untouchable?
“I always said that I am feeling well here with my teammates, with this club, and with the fans from whom I have always felt the love. I will always have to repay all the affection that Inter fans have for me.”
What they want is also what you want: to win.
“I am convinced that we can start winning again right away, otherwise I would be home.”
Inter are in a rebuilding mode but is a trophy possible?
“This is a fundamental period that we are living in. We must have a strong start, stay united, have the right mindset and ready to suffer. Without suffering we will get nothing.”
Without having balance you would not score 24 goals after the mistakes in previous season that won you the Bidone d’oro.
“I won’t deny that I missed a lot of goal-scoring opportunities but I never wanted to be dramatic about it. The fact that changing coaches should be not underestimated: we started with one, continued with another and finished with a third.”
The added value that you have now is that you will have the same coach.
“A huge plus.”
In the meantime, Pazzo said those words (“I’m not a part of this club”).
“That surprises me a little bit and that outburst, we cannot do anything about it. If Pazzo leaves, I would dislike it a lot just like with my other teammates.”
There is already talk of his replacement: Mattia Destro, you know him well.
“He trained with us in the treble season, with Mourinho. Already then I knew that he would be a great and complete striker technically and that was confirmed by the great season that he just had. Especially he will have all the time to even get better.”
About that treble: few of those players remain. Julio Cesar and Maicon could also leave and that number of players will be even less.
“I’m not here to talk about transfer market rumors, let’s see what happens and then we’ll talk about it. Certainly I would dislike it if I lose my teammates and friends. I was very disappointed with the departure of Lucio and even Forlan with whom I had a beautiful relationship. But I say this: the club is focusing on a new project and Inter always come first.”
Here is the players count: for now Argentina is beating Brazil 7-5. Soon it could be 7-3.
“It is not a matter of Brazilians vs. Argentinians. We all have always moved forward in the same direction and will continue doing the same, our victories will confirm this.”
Naturally the story of an Argentinian clan is common.
“I try to ignore it but of course I don’t like hearing a certain things because every day, we work together regardless of nationality. I know that outside, there are those who see that way and they speak of a clan: but it is wrong and it is time to stop it because there is no such thing.”
Now you have Palacio and Silvestre in addition.
“They are two players worthy of Inter. They have demonstrated that in Italy, all the years where they have got so much experience to bring them here. Among other things, both played in a great team: Boca Juniors.”
After the first training game, you could see a formation with Sneijder (for now Coutinho or Alvarez) behind the duo of Palacio-Milito. Not bad at all.
“It would be a very strong formation if Stramaccioni considers it, not to forget Cou and Alvarez of course.”
What would you do to win this season? Would you go blond?
“I would do everything even dying my hair: it washes off anyway.”
