Zanetti wants to play until he is 42

Javier Zanetti, the captain of Inter Milan, is thinking of lying on till the 2015’s summer when he would turn forty two. The forty year old midfield player’s present contract with the Italian giants ends next summer. Now Zanetti has expressed his desire to play for Inter for one more year.

According to reports, he told Inter Milan’s official website that he would like to stay and give his contribution to this great family that Inter Milan is. The Argentine footballer came back to play in 2 – 0 victory over Livorno on Sunday for the very 1st time since tearing his Achilles tendon against Palermo earlier in April.

He told that the match against Livorno was a match full of emotion. After so much time away from the pitch, he dreamt of such a night.

Zanetti joined Inter Milan from Argentinian team Banfield in the year 1995. He is just forty three appearances shy of cracking Serie A appearance record which is currently held by former AC Milan player Paolo Maldini, who had 647 appearances in Serie A.

Zanetti told that with Inter Milan, the target is to go back to have a starring role. The Italian league is tough and there are several teams which compete for the same targets as them. But they are working quite well and they want to fight for something very important.
