Real Madrid GM Valdano: I was right about Barcelona's Milito

Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano insists he was right over their failure to sign Barcelona defender Gabriel Milito.

But with Milito now struggling with long-term injury, Valdano declared to DPA: "People demanded answers about Milito, who was an interesting player in technical terms. But over time, the reasons I gave have proven correct."
