Milito’s class act

Milito struck twice in the Bernabeu as
Inter defeated Bayern to claim the Treble with a deserved victory in the
Champions League final. The brace took Milito’s tally for the season to 30,
ensuring his first season at the club following a move from Genoa has been
wildly successful.

His career has taken in spells with
Argentina’s Racing Club, Real Zaragoza of Spain and two periods with Genoa, but
heading into the World Cup finals, Milito has now placed himself amongst the
world’s finest strikers with a prolific campaign.

“I don’t think I have ever felt such
joy,” said Milito. “Our president Massimo Moratti is the first to deserve this
trophy. It’s a unique feeling. I’m 30, I had to wait a long time to win a
trophy like this but this is football and football always gives you a chance to
make amends.

“I thank Mourinho and the president
for bringing me here last summer, tonight was just fantastic. We won three
trophies, next season we want more.”

Moratti has invested huge amounts in
attempting to turn Inter into European champions and Saturday night’s victory
represents the culmination of a lifetime’s work in aiming to emulate his
father, Angelo, who oversaw the twin European Cup victories of 1964 and 1965.

The president was delighted with the
performance of the side managed by Jose Mourinho, who became the new coach of
Real Madrid immediately after the match.

“It’s the same joy as 45 years ago,”
said Moratti. “I didn’t cry, but Jose Mourinho did, so that shows how much he
cares about this club! I am very happy and found the players absolutely
overcome with emotion.

“This is a wonderful moment and I hope
it will remain in the hearts of the fans the same way it did many years ago.
The team felt a great responsibility on its shoulders and played the perfect
game tonight.”
