Milito is a prolific Argentinian striker best known for his heroics in the 2009-2010 season for Inter Milan ÃƒÂ¢€Ã¢â‚¬Å“ winning the treble and scoring both goals in the Champions League final. He began his football career in Argentina for Racing Club de Allevaneda, debuting in 1999. He spent four and a half seasons at Racing, winning one Primera DivisiÃƒÂ³n and scoring 37 times before Italian side Genoa bought him in 2004. Milito had two successful seasons with Genoa, leading them to promotion in 2005 with 22 goals; however Genoa were relegated instead as sanctions for a match-fixing scandal.
Milito decided to leave the club following the débÃƒÂ¢cle, moving to Real Zaragoza in Spain where his brother Gabriel played. He again lead his club to promotion with 21 goals in 2005-2006, where his prolific form in La Liga earned him many admirers. Scoring 61 goals in 125 games for Zaragoza, Milito moved back to Genoa in 2008 for one year. He scored 26 times that season, and finally decided to move to a bigger club, inking a deal with Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan, adopting the number 22 shirt.
2009-2010 was a historic year for Inter Milan and for Milito. Chasing the elusive Champions League title the fans and board demanded, Milito scored 30 goals in InterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s fifth straight Serie A title, second straight Coppa Italia, and third Champions League crown. Milito won a handful of awards following this season, including Serie A Footballer of the Year.
Despite domestic goal scoring success at every club heÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s been part of, Milito has had only limited chances for Argentina. He debuted in 2003, but missed out on the 2006 World Cup, and only secured a place in the squad before the 2010 tournament. HeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s scored 4 times in 24 appearances for La Albiceleste.
