Barcelona's Argentinian defender Gabriel Milito has finally returned to action after more than 18 months on the sidelines due to a serious knee problem. The 29-year-old lasted 45 minutes of a friendly against Bolivian side Bolivar and was clearly delighted to be back on the pitch. He told Sport: "It was a very special day, I recovered the old feelings after so long without playing. "Things have changed a lot recently and I have a lot more confidence, security and optimism. I am taking great strides, although I know that I am still recovering. "I still need time to play a competitive game. I don't know exactly how much, but I need a bit."
