Inter captain Javier Zanetti has stated that he has no plans of retiring any time soon despite his age.

The 40-year-old has been out of action since April with an Achilles tendon injury, which many thought would spell the end of his 18 year career with the Nerazzurri, since April.

However the veteran told that he’s on a steady road to recovery and that he’s looking forward to getting back on to the pitch.

“The injury? I feel much better,” said the Argentine. “I train with the team and I hope to play soon.

“I want to be cautious with my return to the field and do everything calmly.

“Will I be back by December or January? Maybe even before then I think.

“My future? I still don’t want to retire. I’m thinking of recovering from my injury and getting back to playing.

“In the future I see myself as a manager at Inter, but not as a coach. I’ve never thought of returning to Argentina, I’m fine here.

“Offers? [Massimo] Moratti will propose something to me.

“He’ll remain with the Indonesian’s, the deal was done to help promote Inter in those markets.

“All of this was done for the good of the club.”
