Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has ruled out replacing crocked striker Diego Milito.

Milito is out for the season after undergoing knee surgery yesterday.

"We don't like to think about these things 12 hours on from an injury like that, but I can categorically rule out the chances of bringing anyone else in," Moratti stated.

"Milito's injury is not only a blow from a footballing perspective but also very sad for him because he'd rediscovered his enthusiasm for the game, and he's a consummate professional."
