Inter’s Javier Zanetti has insisted he will spend one more season with the club despite being ruled out for eight months through injury.

The Argentine ruptured his Achilles tendon in Inter’s 1-0 defeat at Palermo in April, leading to fears that the 39-year-old may never play again.

However, Zanetti has refuted these suggestions and stressed he will play for the Italian giants for one more year at least.
“On August 10 I will reach 40. My intention is to play again after this injury,” he told Argentine radio station Rock and Closs.
“I hope to be here for another season, I want to stay at Inter.”
Inter have endured a disappointing campaign under the guidance of manager Andrea Stramaccioni, with a run of five defeats in their last six ensuring the San Siro outfit will not be playing in European competition next season.
However, despite Inter’s disappointing form, Zanetti believes Stramaccioni is the right man to take the club forward.
He added: “There are no valid reasons to replace Stramaccioni. Anyway, the president has given Andrea his full confidence.”
Zanetti has made over 600 appearances in his Inter career, winning a clutch of major honours including the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Cup in addition to multiple Serie A and Coppa Italia titles.
