There is much more to Inter Milan than just Mauro Icardi, the club's former striker Diego Milito has said.

Milito has discarded the notion that the team is relying on striker Mauro Icardi. The club captain's outstanding form this season has seen him score six goals in five Serie A appearances to help his side to 10 points from their first five games. Icardi scored two goals in Wednesday's 2-0 win over Empoli, aside netting the much needed equalizer before setting up Ivan Perisic for the winner in the crucial 2-1 victory over defending champions Juventus.

The goals of the 23-year old Argentina international in the Serie A has undoubtedly helped the team and geared up the players' performance on the pitch, but Diego Milito claims that "Inter isn’t a one-man’s club."
"The Juventus win has definitely given us a big lift," Diego Milito, who claimed the treble under Jose Mourinho in 2010, announced to Inter Channel.

"We needed a performance like that and I'm pleased that the team are becoming more consistent. Icardi finishes off Inter's moves but they are by no means a one-man team, as there are other quality players in the side. Banega is a leader on the pitch, he's a great player with real ability.
"I hope Inter can finish as high as possible, although we must remember that they're a new team with a new coach," said Milito.

Due to the shocking 1-1 draw against Bologna on Sunday, Inter Milan are now 4 points behind the Serie A league table leader, Juventus. Juventus lead with 15 points, Napoli is behind by just a point, leaving Inter Milan in third place. Roma and Lazio make up the top five in the league current standings. Empoli, Atalanta, and Crotone are the bottom three sides.
