Inter Milan’s Diego Milito revealed that despite not challenging for the Scudetto this season, his team will still give their all in the upcoming match against Juventus, especially himself.
The Argentinian is keen to put away his bad record against Juve, aiming to score against the Turin giant, something that Milito hasn’t managed to done yet during his time with Inter.
Milito who has just missed a penalty on the weekend when Inter met Atalanta even promised that he won’t chicken out in taking another one should the Nerazzurri did get another spot kick against Juve this weekend. The Argentinian believes that even though his side are not on the running for title, beating the Bianconeri remain an important thing as that could obviously boosted their confidence in fixing their league position by the end of season.
I have never scored against Juventus for Inter and I’ll try my best to get rid of that taboo on Sunday. “If we get a penalty then I’ll take it. “The game against Juventus is a high profile one, a victory against them would gives us a lot in terms of the League table and morale,” Milito said.
Furthermore, the former Genoa player also revealed that he has no intention in leaving the Nerazzurri but the striker admitted that the decision is not all on his shoulder as the club also have a say about the player’s future. Moreover, Milito also stated his support towards current manager, Claudio Ranieri, who the Argentinian said has been very helpful this season, providing comfort towards the striker who was having a tough time since Jose Mourinho’s departure.
I’m really happy in Milan, The club will obviously have the final say, but I don’t want to leave. Bielsa, along with Jose Mourinho, is the best Coach that I have ever had. I do have to thank Ranieri though as he has helped me a lot this season,” Milito explained.
Inter Milan are currently sitting in seventh place and actually still within a shot in getting the final Champions League for next season, although it seems unlikely with the tough competition ahead of them. However, they should really give it a try as long there’s still a chance, but in doing so getting positive result against Juve is a must for Ranieri’s team as just like Milito said, three points against the Turin giant would give a morale boost for Inter players.
