Diego Milito has revealed that the memory of lifting the Champions League still gives him goosebumps.
The Argentine was Inter’s star man when they lifted the trophy in 2010, scoring six goals in 11 appearances, including a double in the 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the final.
Consequently, Milito still cannot quite get his head around what he achieved that night in Madrid, in the most prestigious tournament in club football.
“It was unbelievable,” he enthuses. “I still get goosebumps when I think about that.
“It’s extraordinary: to win the Champions League is unbelievable. It’s not easy and I’m a privileged man.
“I was lucky be part of a great group like the one we had four years ago. Little by little, we will realise that we made a very huge result.”
Turning his attention to this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, Milito says that his native Argentina have a forward line capable of taking the tournament by storm.
While the striker feels that Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero are the key weapons in the Albiceleste’s attacking arsenal, he feels that Angel di Maria could be his country’s key player.
“He has had an amazing year in Real Madrid and I hope he can also have a terrific performance in the World Cup,” the 34-year-old says.
“His experience from the last World Cup has been good for him and I believe he is more mature now and with more confidence in this tournament.
“I believe that after Leo Messi and Kun Aguero, Di Maria is the player in the Argentina team who is the biggest threat to defenders.”
