Milito inspires red Inter to victory

Diego Milito hit a hat-trick and the controversial new red strip was given an outing as Inter began pre-season with a comprehensive victory over a Trentino select.

President Massimo Moratti was on hand last night to witness the first game of the Nerazzurri's annual Pinzolo retreat, and saw Andrea Stramaccioni's side go two up inside six minutes with goals from Philippe Coutinho and Diego Milito.

El Principe completed his treble before half-time, and the scoring was rounded off by Esteban Cambiasso and youngster Luca Garritano in the second period.

Summer signings Rodrigo Palacio, Freddy Guarin and Samir Handanovic all featured, donning the already infamous new red away kit, which has been branded “repulsive” and “an insult to our history” by the Curva Nord group of fans.

Inter: Handanovic (Belec 60); Bianchetti (Nagatomo 46), Samuel, Chivu (Ranocchia 46), Mbaye (Del Piero 86); Guarin (Longo 46), Cambiasso; Zanetti (Benassi 76), Palacio (Garritano 72), Coutinho (Pasa 85), Milito (Livaja 64)
