Nerazzurri Treble Hero Diego Milito: “Lautaro Martinez Would Be Happier If He Stayed At Inter”

Legendary Inter striker Diego Milito has shared his belief that Inter striker Lautaro Martinez has what it takes to be able to play for any club in the world.

The highly rated 22-year-old striker has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona ahead of the upcoming transfer window and several other clubs have also been linked with him too, including a number of Premier League clubs.

“Lautaro can play in any team in the world,” he began an interview with Argentine news outlet Infobae.

“He is a fantastic striker. A great boy, to whom I am very attached. I am happy for him. I think he would be happier at Inter, but if he has to go to Barcelona I wish him the best.”

Milito then went on to discuss how he came to wear the number 22 shirt and what Jose Mourinho did to ensure he could wear it at Inter too.

“It came randomly. At Zaragoza I had to choose between 2 and 22, an attacker would never take 2. I arrived at Genoa and it was free and when I arrived at Inter the third goalkeeper Orlandoni had it but Mourinho told me that he would take care of it and asked him to change numbers.”

The former Argentine national team striker then went on to speak about what it was like to work under the Portuguese manager.

“He’s extraordinary. People outside see it from afar and have a wrong image of what José is as a person and as a coach. He’s one of the best I’ve had without a doubt.”

Milito joined Inter in the Summer of 2009 from fellow Serie A club Genoa and spent the next six seasons with the club before departing for Racing Club.

Whilst at Inter, Milito made 171 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he scored 75 goals and provided 29 assists for his teammates.
