Javier Zanetti 3

Javier Zanetti is dreaming of the World Cup. The Inter captain was interviewed by ESPN at the airport before returning to Italy and joining the preparations for the match against Lazio: “How I will live these six months? I’ll enjoy football and my return to the pitch after a very serious injury, trying to always be useful and important for Inter and always give my all. Then you never know what can happen. To me this is a very important year. I want to continue to give 100%”

On the dream of playing in the Argentine shirt: “I have always said that Selección is a part of my life, but I also have respect for everything the guys have done. I have confidence in this Selección, I know the team and Sabella. The desire is always there, but you should let Alejandro work in peace and quiet, I’m sure Argentina will do well with him. The hope is always there, but first I need to focus on getting continuity with my team and it’s something that can help. On a personal level, it would be a nice thing. Let’s hope.”

On Inter’s season: ” We’re still in the Coppa Italia, the league is difficult, we aim to reach Europe. I think Inter should always be at the very top.”

An advice to Icardi: “He must focus on playing football, that’s what he does best. He has a great career ahead of him.”

Asked if he’ll retire this summer Zanetti insists that he wants to ” enjoy the next six months and then evaluate many things calmly. We’ll see what the future holds for me. June is an important and significant moment, but I don’t let that weigh me down.”
