Inter striker Diego Milito feels Jose Mourinho deserves a lot of the credit for his three awards at the Oscar del Calcio last night.
The 31-year-old Argentine won a personal treble, as he was named Serie A Player of the Year, Best Foreigner and Best Bomber.
"There were many successes with Mourinho," Milito said. "As a Coach, he taught us many things like for example never giving up.
"I will always thank him."
Milito then reflected on this season, which has been hampered by four separate injuries.
"Now I am a lot better. I am looking to recover in the best way possible.
"Let's just say that I would like to be there against Palermo on Sunday. This is the idea."
