Diego Milito sent a farewell message to Inter after five years. “I will carry you in my heart forever.”
The striker was one of the stars of the 2010 Treble campaign, but was not offered a new contract and walks away at the same time as Javier Zanetti, Esteban Cambiasso, Walter Samuel and Luca Castellazzi.
“The time has come to say goodbye...” wrote Milito on his official Facebook page.
“Unfortunately my time with the Nerazzurri has reached the final stop. I have decided to try a new professional adventure.
“I still don’t know what the future holds for me, but I still feel ‘alive’ and with a crazy desire to become a protagonist again.
“I want to thank everyone who, in these years at Inter, I shared our success and incredible joy with: the club, President Massimo Moratti, all the members of the staff and obviously all my teammates.
“Above all, the biggest thanks goes to you the fans for all you’ve given me in these five seasons... I will carry you in my heart forever, you’ve been fantastic.
“Thank you to everyone and forza F.C. Internazionale Milano forever!”
