Inter Milan forward Diego Milito feels it is premature to compare his coach Andrea Stramaccioni to Real Madrid's Jose Mourinho as the two are at different stages in their career, although the Argentine striker, who has played for both coaches, does believe there are similarities between them.
Stramaccioni, 36, was recently likened to the outspoken Portuguese coach by Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti and has been drawing widespread comparisons because of his early success on a big stage, but Milito believes it is too early to make any such comparisons.
"I'd prefer to avoid this discussion. Mourinho has already won everything throughout his career. Our current coach on the other hand is only at the beginning of his," Milito was quoted as saying by Tuttosport. "The thing they have in common is their ability to get the right message across to the players and to get the best out of each of us."
The prolific attacker then went on to stress that he is thoroughly enjoying life at the Nerazzurri, adding that his current side will be his last club in Europe.
"I’m really happy at Inter, and there is still plenty of time until my contract expires in 2014," said Milito, who has five goals in 10 league this season. "We’ll see what happens, but I’m sure that Inter will be my last European club."
