The former Argentine player Diego Milito, champion of all with Inter Milan in 2010, opined this Wednesday that the departure of the Belgian Romelu lukaku of the Milanese club is positive for the Argentine Lautaro Martinez, which is now the main element of the lead.
“Lautaro it has grown a lot, although it still has enormous room for improvement. Your point of strength is your mindset. He has clear ideas, he listens, he wants to learn. Before he was too angry on the field, now he has improved and has the mentality of a top-level player, “he said. Milito in an interview published by the Italian newspaper “La Gazzetta dello Sport”.
“He already took the right path. And if before the protagonist was Lukaku, now Lautaro It is the main element of the front. It is positive for him, “he continued.
Milito was one of the great promoters of Lautaro Martinez, who saw his growth during his time as manager of Racing Avellaneda, and favored his signing for Inter Milan in 2018.
“I have not given him any advice on the possible contract renewal, even if we talk a lot. He reasons and is happy at Inter. It seems that he is about to renew and I hope he will stay a long time,” said the Prince.
The former Argentine striker, who scored 255 goals in his career, also considered that Lautaro can form an excellent offensive partner with his compatriot Joaquin Correa.
It was much harder with Lukaku, whom he criticized for leaving Inter after promising, a few weeks before, that he would stay in Milan.
“Promising something that you cannot keep is something you never have to do. It can be accepted that a forward like him decides to sign for another club, but the fans are disappointed precisely by his statements (in which he assured that he would continue in Milan this season ) “.
