Inter’s Dejan Stankovic has revealed he wants to stay with the club when he eventually hangs up his boots.

The 34-year-old has been out recently with an achilles problem, but hopes to force his way into coach Andrea Stramaccioni’s plans.

“I have said a thousand times that I feel like part of a family here,” he told Inter Channel.

“Staying here is something that I would more than willingly do, in fact I’d love to.

“But even if I do not stay, I would always make myself available to Inter. Anyway, for now I just want to get back on the field.

“I do not know when I’ll be back. I just want to make sure that when I do come back, I’ll stay fit for a long time.

“I cannot wait to return, to not be involved at the moment is hard to digest.” VIP Lounge
