Striker Diego Milito found it “easy” to settle into his new Inter Milan side after scoring both goals in the Italian champions’ 2-0 friendly win over AC Milan in the United States.
The Argentine, signed from Genoa, is likely to partner Samuel Eto’o in attack this season once the Barcelona forward completes his swap with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“I would have found it enjoyable with Ibra but I will find it fun with Eto’o too. It is easy when you have great champions alongside you,” he told Italian media on Monday.
AC Milan rookie coach Leonardo, who has not yet been able to lay his hands on a replacement for Kaka, the Brazilian playmaker sold to Real Madrid, conceded reinforcements were needed following their lacklustre showing in Massachusetts.
“We need a bigger squad, it was enough to see the changes Inter made compared to us,” the Brazilian said.
Leonardo added that Real striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar was still a potential target after a move for Sevilla’s Luis Fabiano stalled.
