Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has warned that Argentina forward Diego Milito will not be allowed to leave the club as easily as coach Jose Mourinho.
Milito scored both goals for Inter in their 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the final of Europe’s permier club competition on Saturday, thus securing a first ever treble for an Italian club.
With Inter coach Jose Mourinho expected to join Real Madrid in the coming days, reports in Italy have claimed Milito could also be on his way out the San Siro despite having a contract until 2013.
However Moratti warned that allowing Mourinho to leave is not the same thing as letting Milito go.
“I can only say that there is a difference between Milito and our coach Mourinho,” Moratti said on the club’s official website www.inter.it.
“Mourinho has a clause which can allow him to leave. Milito doesn’t.”
“I am more attracted by the idea of an up-and-coming coach with quality, but you have to find one with new ideas,” he added although ruling out former coach Roberto Mancini who is now with Manchester City.
