Milito ‘wins’ Golden Bin dishonour

Diego Milito of Inter is the unfortunate winner of the Bidone d’Oro award for the worst player of 2011.

The Argentine striker, who won the Treble with his Italian club in 2010, has had a year to forget after struggling for form and goals.

Milito was handed the yearly tongue-in-cheek prize by Radio 2 show Catersport who ask their listeners to vote for the poorest player of the solar year.

The former Genoa man succeeds Adriano who won the 2010 honour while under-performing at Roma. The Brazilian also ‘succeeded’ in 2006 and 2007.

Juventus striker Amauri, who hasn’t played for the Old Lady this season, was runner-up for the second consecutive year.

Teammate Milos Krasic, who has lost his place in the Old Lady starting XI, finished third in the poll.

Bidone d’Oro translates as Golden Bin.
