Inter’s Diego Milito has publicly thanked everyone for their support after his season came to an agonising end on Thursday.
The Argentine striker damaged knee ligaments in the 2-0 win over Cluj last night, an injury which will require surgery and around six months on the sidelines.
“I'd like to thank everyone – from the bottom of my heart – for the kind messages and affection I've received since last night,” a note read on the club’s website.
“I thank President Moratti, my teammates and everyone at Inter.
“I thank the colleagues who have contacted me, Genoa CFC, AC Milan, ACF Fiorentina and all the other clubs who have said such kind things.
“But above all I'd like to thank the Nerazzurri fans who have made me very emotional over the last few hours.
“All this affection gives me a huge boost and I'll do everything I can to get back playing as soon as possible.
“Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, Diego Milito.”
