I’ve been training with my team-mates for the past month and I feel much more confident and optimistic. I’m making progress though I’m still in the recovery phase. I’m still not ready for a competitive match. How long? I don’t know yet but it won’t be long”.

Thanks everyone!
Milito would like to thank everyone who has helped him during his fight back from injury: “I only have words of thanks to the Club for the support they’ve given me and for the patience that they’ve had, and have, with me. Thank you to the directors, the coaching staff and the other people who have been by my side. I’d also like to thank Dr. Ramon Cugat, Dr. Romero de Agostino and the "physios", especially Emili Ricart who fought day by day at my side, Lorenzo Buenaventura and the physio of the Argentine national team Luis García. They’ve all been fundamental.
