Diego MILITO: "I was a little bit unlucky"
Diego MILITO, now with Racing Club in Argentina, spoke about winning the treble and his time with Argentina.
 
In the interview with FIFA.com, MILITO said he was a bit unlucky with the coaches while playing with Argentina. Here are parts of the interview:
 
His highlight from Europe:
"It’s hard to pick out just the one. It would be easy and a bit obvious to say 2010, when we made history with Inter. No other Italian team had won the treble before and we won the Champions League for the first time in 45 years. They were special moments that will stay with me forever, but I also had some very intense experiences in Genoa, especially when I returned from Zaragoza, and in Spain too, where I lived with my brother Gabriel, even though we weren’t playing together."
 
About his career with Argentina, if he could have had more opportunities or luck:
"(Laughs) A little bit of both. I can’t really say that I deserved to have more opportunities, especially when you consider all the class players Argentina has had up front. All the same, and even though I made the squad a lot of times, I’m still disappointed I didn’t play more. I always tried to contribute whatever I could."
 
His bad luck against Greece, where he missed but PALERMO came on and scored:
"(Laughs) Luck works in a lot of different ways. I hope nobody takes it the wrong way, but I was a little bit unlucky with the coaches too. They each have their preferences when it comes to strikers and that’s understandable. I got the feeling that (Marcelo) BIELSA really liked me, but when he picked me I didn’t play my best football and I wasn’t fortunate enough to have another coach ‘fall for me’, so to speak – someone who had two strikers and said: ‘MILITO is my striker’."
 
If Lionel MESSI is the best he ever played with:
"Yes. Lionel is the best in the world, no question. It’s a privilege to have played and trained with him."
 
If he knows how long he will keep playing now that he is 35 years old:
"No. I’m just trying to enjoy each day. Obviously, I know that I haven’t got much time left, but I want to enjoy it because I had a really bad time when I was injured. It opened my mind a little and let me see things in a different way. My brother Gabriel had the same injury and he said to me: ‘Enjoy it because you’re going to realise what you’ve been through’. So that’s what I’m doing."

Napoli sold the wrong player. Britos won't even get into any Indian league side.

Athletic Bilbao stadium is nice..I wish they would have some of these top class facilities at next year Copa..By the way, is Chile building new stadiums for next year Copa or will they use the same beat up stadiums they have been playing in with no renovation? South America need to start marketing their football better..

Fazio is good in the air but he is very slow and will struggle if Tottenham insist on highline defense

Diego Milito is similiar with Sylvestar Stallone, unlucky and did not get a chance to play a serious role in big movie title; however fans love him and most important thing he really enjoy his playing time.

Argentina have a lots of strikers, the competition for getting the spot is high and tough,like and dislike factor are included.

He deserved to start in place of higuain in 2010, his link up play was great and he was smart finisher, imagine if we had a good coach with the players we had that World Cup

he had the worst luck with the n/t and was destined never to be a star for us, he either got injured,was over looked or brought on as a sub when he needed a good starting run with the n/t to prove him self (not the odd game here and their)but never really got one.

For me he is a true legend . A man for big moments . A player for big matches . Yes he was unlucky , especially in 2010... He should've started before Higuain in every game. He missed out on Ballon D'Or too, imo, he should've been in the top 3 in 2010.

If he was presented an opportunity like what Higuain got in the Final he would've scored 10 times out of 10. He had a steely reserve, never choked.

Will miss u always, El Principe !
