Zanetti: Icardi and Tevez important to Argentina
Icardi joined Zanetti at Inter this summer from Parma and the Inter captain feels he can feature for the national side in years to come.
“I’m convinced that Icardi can be the future of the Seleccion,” the currently injured full-back told Argentinian radio station Deportivo Telam.
Zanetti is also former team mate of Tevez and although the Juventus striker has fallen out of favour in the national setup, the veteran full back has no doubts he will return for Argentina
“With regard to Tevez, I think he will do well with Juventus and I’m certain he will be back for Argentina,” he continued.
“He has settled really well into Italian football.”
Tevez moved to the Turin giants in the summer after previously playing for the English side Manchester City.
The 29 year-old has found the net in his first three competitive games for the bianconeri.
