Argentine striker Diego Milito was one of the main reasons for Inter Milan winning the Champions league back in 2010. The striker, though, has since suffered several injury problems, which have worsened in recent seasons. As a result, there have been recent rumours that the 33-year-old may announced his retirement from football at the end of the season. Milito, though, has rejected such speculation by saying that he expects to start playing again when he recovers from his current injury problems.
Milito has been suffering from a serious knee problem, which has kept him out of action for the majority of the year. There have been reports that the striker has failed to make a full recovery from the injury, thus prompting reports that he may be contemplating retiring from football.
Milito has said that returning back to his home country Argentina to play for an Argentine club would be one of his dreams. It is not known whether the 33-year-old may be sold in the summer in order to achieve this dream. The former Genoa man has said that he is right now concentrating only on returning to the pitch, and he will have to take thoughts about his future from there on. Milito was signed from the Italian club Genoa four years ago.
“My future? I expect to start playing again. There’s just one goal in my head right now and that’s to try and make a good recovery and get back on the pitch. Will I end my career at Inter? I honestly don’t know. I’ve always said that I’d like to go back to Argentina and play with the club I started with. You never know. Now I’m focused on recovering and getting back on the pitch. I don’t know what will happen after that,” said the striker.
