Inter captain raring to return to the club

Javier Zanetti InterInter captain Javier Zanetti 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.”
