Diego Milito’s dream of winning the Argentine title was fulfilled during the very first season when the Argentine forward made his return to Racing Club which was the club where he signed his first professional and performed at his 19 years of age.
During the 2014-15 season, Racing Club was crowned as the champions of Argentina after winning the Argentina Primera Division and this is a huge accomplishment taking into consideration that it’s the top tier league of the South American country and that the club had not lifted that trophy in over 11 years.
This title was not only especially significant for Racing Club but it was even more important for Diego Militoas he returned to his youth club and came back in full force as he helped the Argentine side in winning the league title by scoring 6 goals and providing 4 assists.
The next task of Racing Club and Diego Milito is to protect their latest piece of silverware but it will be a difficult mission to accomplish as the team has sustained 3 draws, 1 loss and 3 victories during the 7 opening matches of this new season. It hasn’t been a stellar start of season but there is more than enough time to climb spots and truly initiate their title defending campaign.
Inter Milan was the last top European club that Diego Milito performed in before he decided to make a return to Racing Club but the Italian outfit has struggled trying to get into the top spots of the Serie A. This has even caused the club on having to make a change in their managers as Roberto Mancini replaced Walter Mazzarri. Read more »

Former Liverpool midfielder Alberto Aquilani has rejected suggestions that he is looking for a move away from Fiorentina because he is yet to sign a new contract. The player confirmed that he has just over six months left on his deal.
However, he has not signed on the dotted line just yet primarily because he is concentrating on the league campaign. It is expected that Aquilani may extend his contract with Fiorentina, if he wishes to, during the winter break. Aquilani’s agent recently confirmed that the player has been holding talks with the club over a potential contract extension.
Fiorentina would not be happy with letting the player leave on a free transfer, as they would ideally like to get some transfer fee. After a few disastrous years at Liverpool, the former Roma man does seem to be coming back to his best. He has been at Fiorentina since 2012, but he is reported to have cost the club under £ 1 million in transfer fees. This is because of his injury crisis at Liverpool, which forced the Premier League outfit to cut their losses on the player they had signed for around £ 20 million a few years ago. The 30-year-old has featured in 13 matches this season and has scored one goal.
“The situation is clear – my contract expires next June.My relationship with the club is good, with directors I’ve known for a long time. So there’s no war!We’ve begun the journey [to a renewal], and we’re talking about it. But there’s still no news because I’ve played a lot of matches this season, including with the national team and therefore there wasn’t much time to talk. I’m fine here, and the club knows that,” said Aquilani. Fiorentina are 10th in the table with just three wins from the opening 10 matches.
