Milito celebrates Inter century

Diego Milito is delighted that he managed to celebrate his 100th appearance for Inter with a goal at Bologna.

The Argentine netted on Sunday afternoon in a 3-1 win at the Dall'Ara which keeps the club’s Scudetto hopes alive.

“Having played 100 matches in an Inter shirt is something that makes me proud,” he told Inter Channel. “Very proud indeed.

“As for my goal, the ball I received from Rodrigo Palacio was excellent.

“I enjoy playing with Palacio, just as I do with Antonio Cassano. There’s understanding and balance between us. It’s important to play with footballers like that.”

The Beneamata had a problematic start to the season, but they have won their last five games in Serie A – which means they are just four points shy of leaders Juventus.

“I believe things changed with the loss to Siena,” he said of the Week 4 shock home defeat. “From that point we were able to find more balance. That defeat changed us.”

Inter have now won seven games on the trot in all competitions – which equals the achievement of Helenio Herrera’s side in the 1961-62 campaign.
