Milito targeting October return

After knee ligament damage in February, Diego Milito is reportedly on track to return to full fitness for Inter by the start of October.

The Argentine caught his studs in the turf during the opening exchanges of play against Cluj in mid-February, damaging the anterior cruciate and collateral ligaments in his left knee.

Provisionally ruled out for at least six months after undergoing corrective surgery, the Gazzetta dello Sport understand today that the 34-year-old’s return date has been set.

Milito and Inter’s medical staff are reportedly anticipating the striker’s return to full fitness by the end of September, the first week of October at the latest.

Despite being described as having ‘made great strides’ in his recovery, this return date is seen as bringing the player back without risking relapse.
