Milito is a legend, says Belfodil

The Algeria international has hailed the experienced attacker’s down-to-earth nature and is pleased with his start to life at the Giuseppe Meazza side

Inter forward Ishak Belfodil has voiced his admiration for Diego Milito and has praised his team-mate’s humble attitude.

Milito played a pivotal role in the Nerazzurri‘s treble triumph of 2009-10, scoring twice in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich after hitting the winner in the Coppa Italia against Roma.

Belfodil joined Inter from Parma in the summer transfer window and the 21-year-old feels honoured to have the opportunity to train and play alongside the experienced Argentine.

“Now I see him every day, he’s a very nice, normal guy and he doesn’t behave like he’s a legend – which he is,” Belfodil told InterNOS.

“Perhaps when I leave or when he does I’ll say to myself, ‘Blimey, you played with Diego Milito!’.”

The Algeria international went on to stress his gratitude for the way his team-mates have helped to settle since his reported €7.5 million move to Giuseppe Meazza.

“I like it at Inter and it’s been like that since the start. I’ve not had any problems and what’s helped has been the fact my Italian’s better than it was in previous years. The more experienced players have also helped me to settle quickly, like [Esteban] Cambiasso and it all went better once my friend Taider joined,” he continued.

“Then there was also [Gaby] Mudingayi, who speaks French, and [Ibrahima] Mbaye, who then went to Livorno. But all the other guys, the Argentinians etc. have all helped me a lot.”

Belfodil has made three official appearances for Inter so far.
