Diego Milito played best under Inter Milan

Diego Milito was a lesser-known striker before his move to Inter Milan, where he enjoyed immense success.

The former Genoa striker lifted numerous trophies including the Champions League in 2010. He played under one of the best coaches in the world – Jose Mourinho. Recalling on this brilliant spell, the striker says that it is by far the best time in his career. He is unlikely to hit those glory days again given that Milito is now plying his trade in Argentine football with Racing Club. The striker has featured in 17 matches and scored six goals so far.

Prior to his move to Inter Milan, Milito was playing at the likes of Real Zaragoza and Genoa. These clubs provided him with regular first-team football but they were not able to satisfy his hunger for trophies. This moment arrived when Mourinho signed him in 2009 for leading the attack.

It is thought that the striker reportedly cost around € 20 million, but he more than repaid the huge transfer fees by leading the club to a famous treble in his first season. Apart from winning the Champions League, the club also lifted the Italian league title and the Coppa Italia. Even though Milito is back amongst title success with Racing Club, he says that the time with Inter was beyond comparison.

“Mourinho is one of the best coaches in the world. He can always get 100% from all of his players.With him, back in 2010, I reached the pinnacle of my career, even though winning the title with Racing Club has still been very special to me.I was lucky to win these two titles with Racing here in Argentina, I feel privileged. I preferred to come back here rather than go somewhere else where I could have earned much more money.The Argentine Primera Division? There is more hunger here than there is in Italy,” said Milito.
