Benitez talks on Milito ahead of Inter-Genoa game

Inter Coach Rafa Benitez confirmed that Diego Milito will be back in the squad for the game with Genoa on Friday night if things go according to plan. “Diego returned to the squad yesterday and did very well in training. If there are no further problems for him today or tomorrow, he will definitely be on the list of call-ups “.
There has been a widespread outcry against the Argentine’s exclusion from the nominees for the Ballon d’Or in the past few days and Benitez reiterated these sentiments: “I don’t know what to say, to me he has to be there after everything he did last year. Its strange, really strange particularly as he even won the UEFA Club Player of the Year “.
The Spaniard was then questioned about how Milito will be accommodated in the team as Samuel Eto’o has been in blistering form of late scoring 15 goals already: “We’ll have to wait and see once Milito returns. I’d rather have this problem than not have it, but I don’t think I will change the formation “.
Inter have struggled for goals in the league this term scoring only 10 in their opening eight games and Benitez believes that this is due to the injuries suffered by his team: “I think Pandev and Milito’s absence makes a difference. Similiarly, our midfielders like Thiago Motta and Stankovic who score are also injured. Against Samp we did well, we had 20 shots on goal, we are only lacking the incisiveness in attack “.
Inter are currently third in the standings behind city rivals Milan and leaders Lazio, but Rafa is not worried by it: “Last year Inter had a 12 point lead in January but won only on the last day of the season. I think we can win in Genoa, but I can only guarantee that we will do everything we can “.
Finally Benitez was asked to comment on the events of the past week surrounding Milos Krasic and the Milan-Juve clash at the weekend: “I think the situation was clear with Krasic and the Italian authorities dealt with it in the appropriate manner. As for Milan-Juve game I cannot control others, I only think about Inter but like I said I don’t think about the league too much at this point “. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
