Milito: 'Icardi exit a good deal'

Diego Milito insists Inter fans only care about Antonio Conte’s “greatness” and that Mauro Icardi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain was “a good deal for everyone”.

Milito is happy to see Inter back in contention for the Scudetto and doesn’t care if Conte’s past lies with arch-rivals Juventus, with whom he won titles as both a player and coach.

“The coach’s past doesn’t interest us Inter fans,” the Nerazzurri hero told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He is a great coach, I don’t have any doubts about that and he’s showing why he is one.

“We are happy when we see our team play proactive football and continuing to win.”

Icardi left the club on bad terms over the summer, joining PSG on loan with option to buy, but his fellow Argentine believes the right decision was made.

“I’d say it ended well. Beyond how we might judge it from the outside, his exit was a good deal for everyone, for Mauro who went to Paris and is doing very well, but also for Inter who replaced him in the correct way.”
