Football: Inter Milan's injured Milito set to miss rest of season
MILAN (REUTERS) - Inter Milan's main striker Diego Milito is likely to miss the rest of the season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury during Thursday's 2-0 Europa League win over CFR Cluj.
The Argentine, who scored both goals in the final when Inter won the Champions League in 2010, had only just returned from injury and was in tears when he was carried off after six minutes at the San Siro.
"It's his cruciate ligament, a new type of injury for Diego, nothing to do with the problems he's had before," coach Andrea Stramaccioni told reporters.
"We're gutted for Diego as a person first and foremost, and then of course for what he represents as a player. We need to see when he'll have the operation."
