Inter Milan striker Diego Milito admits he hopes Jose Mourinho will remain in charge at the club next season.
Mourinho's contract with Inter runs until June 2012, but the Portuguese coach has been strongly linked with Real Madrid.
"We hope he will remain with us," said Milito. "He is very important to us."
Mourinho stated earlier this week that he will only make a decision regarding his future after Saturday's Champions League final against Bayern Munich.
The Nerazzurri travel to Madrid tomorrow knowing that they are on the cusp of history, with the Italian giants within touching distance of a magnificent treble.
"We have to think of how we are going to approach Bayern," said Milito. "Up to now, we have not been able to talk among us about this because we have had so many important games.
"From tomorrow, we will start to organise ourselves.
"Bayern has a very good team, with great players."
Milito, who scored the winning goals that handed Inter the Coppa Italia last month and the scudetto on Sunday, is the team's leading scorer in the Champions League having found the back of the net four times.Reuse content
