Diego Milito: Fully focused on returning to action

The veteran frontman suffered a serious knee injury in the Europa League match against Cluj in February that ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

Speculation has surfaced the 33-year-old Argentina international could hang up his boots rather than return to action.

But Milito, who has been at Inter since 2009 after joining from Genoa, says he is determined to get back to playing in the near future.

He told Inter Channel: "What do I expect from the future? My return to action.

"In my mind I have only one aim: trying to recover in a good way to get back on the pitch."

Milto, who is contracted at Inter until 2014, has also been linked with a return to his homeland with boyhood club Racing.

But the striker was reluctant to discuss his future, adding: "A return to Racing to close my career? I don't know yet."

Grateful

The Argentinian was full of gratitude to Inter's fans and staff for their support during his recent injury setback.

"I'll never stop thanking Inter supporters because, especially with me, they have been and they are fantastic," he said.

"For this reason I want to try and give them a lot of satisfaction again. They deserve this.

"I thank the club too: from the president to the others, they have been really close to me in the hardest moment of my career.

"I thank my family who is always with me, and the whole of the Inter medical staff."
