thumbnail Hello,

The Argentine forward twisted his ankle in Saturday night's victory over Fiorentina but is confident that he will be available for the midweek trip to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris

Inter striker Diego Milito is hopeful that he will be fit for Tuesday’s Serie A clash with Genoa despite picking up a knock in Saturday's win over Fiorentina.

The Argentine was forced off midway through the second half of the 2-0 victory over the Viola with an ankle problem, but is optimistic regarding his chances of being fit to face his former club in midweek.

"Unfortunately, I took a knock,” Milito told Inter Channel after the game at the Giuseppe Meazza.

“I twisted my ankle a bit, but let's hope it's nothing serious and that I can be on the pitch on Tuesday."

Inter can go above Genoa in the standings with a win at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, but Milito knows better than most that the three points will not be easy to come by, particularly in light of the hosts' fine 2-0 win at Siena.

"The Rossoblu are a great team with great values,” said the former Genoa striker. “We'll find a difficult place to play with fans that always urge on their team.

“[On Saturday] they won in a tough stadium like Siena. They'll be motivated and they'll run a lot.

“But we'll go there to win because the three points we won against Fiorentina have given us the spirit to fight."

Inter currently sit ninth in Serie A on 17 points, one adrift of Genoa, with both sides having played 13 games.
