Diego Milito will make sure he is good and ready before returning to action with Inter Milan.

The Argentina international is recovering from a hamstring strain in his left leg he sustained earlier this month. "I am improving," Milito said. "I am well but as (Inter) coach Leonardo said, I don't have to be too anxious to return. I have to recover well.

"I am so looking forward to playing but the common aim is for me to be available until the end of the season," he went on.

I am calm and my only thoughts are to recover and give my best to the team.

"I don't know if I will be able to play in the Champions League return leg in Munich (on 15 March) but I am calm and my only thoughts are to recover and give my best to the team."

After an extremely successful 2009-10 campaign, in which Milito helped the Italian giants to the treble by scoring both goals in the UEFA Champions League final against Bayern Munich, the 31-year-old has had a nightmare with injuries this season.

Milito has scored five goals in 16 league appearances for Inter this season.
