Hero Milito's 'unique' joy

Published: Saturday 22 May 2010, 22.58CET
FC Internazionale Milano match-winner Diego Milito said it was "unique feeling" to score the goals that downed FC Bayern München in the UEFA Champions League final. "I don't think I have ever felt such joy," said the forward, whose two strikes secured Inter's 2-0 success. "Our president [Massimo Moratti] is the first to deserve this trophy. It's a unique feeling. I'm 30, I had to wait a long time to win a trophy like this but this is football and football always gives you a chance to make amends. I thank [José] Mourinho and the president for bringing me here last summer, tonight was just fantastic. We won three trophies, next season we want more."
