Diego Milito: “Roma is the perfect place for Mourinho.”

Andy Mattioli

Former Inter attacker Diego Milito spoke about the years he worked with Jose Mourinho and the Special One’s tenure at Roma.

In a recent interview with Corriere della Sera, Milito reminisced about the day Mourinho announced he’d be leaving Inter in favor of Real Madrid.

“A mix of emotions: we were happy to have won the Champions League, but sorry not to continue working with him,” Milito told the Italian newspaper.

“His departure was a terrible blow for us, it left a mark on the team,” he added.

“Was I surprised when he joined Roma? No, Roma is the perfect place for him.”
