Diego Milito says Inter Milan’s recent win over Juventus has given them the belief they can take out the Scudetto this season.
Formerly at Real Zaragoza, Milito has enjoyed a renaissance in 2012, with his double in the victory over Juventus on November 3 pushing both him up to 27 league goals this calendar year as the Nerazzurri climb to second on the Italian table.
Speaking to Inter’s official website, the Argentina international reiterated his desire to win more trophies with the club, particularly the Scudetto shield.
“I’d do anything to win the Scudetto!” the 33-year-old said. “We hope to win titles. Lots of titles.”
Milito had previously said back in July that he would even dye his hair blonde if Inter won the Serie A this season, claiming: “I would do everything even dying my hair: it washes off anyway.
The striker is not the first player at the club to talk openly of the team’s title intentions for this season, with Javier Zanetti and Juan both speaking in recent weeks of how the team have their sights set on the league title.
During his interview, Milito also took a moment to look back on Inter’s Champions League triumph in 2010, when he scored twice in the final.
“The second goal relaxed us a bit. From that moment I thought ‘We’re close, we’re close to realising a dream’,” he added.
“Scoring is the pinnacle in football. Sometimes it’s difficult to explain it in words. It’s a moment of joy, and it’s so immensely satisfying when you hit the back of the net.
“Have I kept in touch with (former coach Jose) Mourinho? Yes, I get the odd text from him. We get on really well.”
