Zanetti vows to carry on

Zanetti vows to carry on

Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti has insisted that his career is not over despite suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon at the weekend. Zanetti suffered the injury 17 minutes into Inter’s 1-0 defeat by Palermo, leaving the 39-year-old to be carried off the pitch on a stretcher.
However Zanetti says he wants to “come back stronger than before”.
“Injuries can happen and they’re part of this profession,” said Zanetti.
“We’ll decide when surgery will take place. They still haven’t given me the times involved but my career certainly isn’t over. What matters is healing well.”
