Inter captain raring to return to the club

Javier Zanetti Inter captain has stated that his recovery from Achilles tendon surgery is going well, though he admits he is missing being at the club’s pre-season retreat.

The 39-year-old suffered the injury in April and is progressing well in his recovery, as the Argentine is looking to rejoin his teammates as soon as possible.

“It is a bit strange not being at the pre-season retreat but I am recovering in Argentina and hope to return as soon as possible,” he told Inter Channel.

“Mazzarri? Yes, we needed to work a lot. We know that we have to return to being protagonists and we must be able to do so.

“I miss being at Pinzolo but I am following the program that Inter gave me. I see that the tendon is responding well and so I am happy.

“Next season will be more balanced and I hope that next April we will be near the top. I can only thank the fans, they have always supported us and have faith in us.”

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed.
