Diego Milito’s retirement is on the horizon

Diego Milito has to compete against the likes of: Gustavo Bou, Lisandro Lopez and Roger Martinez in order to snatch a spot in the starting lineup of the manager of Racing Club Facundo Sava and taking into consideration that all of them are younger than Milito, it’s something that certainly affects the playing time of the 36 year old attacker who is reaching the final stages of his career.

The veteran player has already confirmed his intention to retire at the end of the current season as Milito is going to be hanging up his boots with the very first professional club that he joined back when he was only 20 years old.

At the young age of 20, Diego Milito joined Racing Club and this was the start of his professional career. From there on out, the Argentine player went on to join: Genoa, Real Zaragoza and Inter Milan before eventually making a return to Racing Club which is where he is performing now and will be spending the last few months of his career.

"In June 2016 I'm going to retire, no matter what. This is my last six months as a professional player. This is a dream come true. This is special, because I love this club. I started here and learned everything here. That allowed me to build my career. I feel privileged. I am very proud of this group.” Racing Club’s Diego Milito said.

Milito isn’t a consistent starter for Racing Club as there are times when the Argentine player is not featured in a match at all and has had to settle with a place on the sidelines while there are other instances when he gets full time in the pitch but nonetheless, even though he does not play such a significant role with his team, the veteran attacker seems to be happy performing with his childhood and has plans to end his career with it.
