After spending most of the 2013/14 season with Inter Milan out due to injury, Diego Milito was signed by the team in which he started off his career, Racing Club.

The veteran made an immediate impact at the club, scoring a goal which helped his side clinch a 3-1 victory against Defensa y Justicia in the Argentine championship.

“I’d always planned on coming back and, all being well, finishing my career wearing the shirt if the club where it all started for me. It’s a very personal thing, though. I’m happy because it’s a decision I took with my heart and I don’t think I’m going to regret it”, Milito told FIFA.

The striker fell short of opportunities in the starting eleven for the Nerazzurri, enabling the Argentine to return to his boyhood club.


“Obviously the chance to get the first-team football I didn’t have with Inter last year because of a serious injury came into it. But I’ve always said that I wanted to come back fighting fit and give the club something. The idea of coming, playing and being in good shape had a lot to do with it”, Milito added.


Milito was instrumental in Inter’s treble winning 2009/10 season, scoring the two goals that won them the Champions League final against Bayern Munich. He was also part of Diego Maradona’s Argentina squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
