The words of Javier Zanetti

Javier Zanetti, awarded by the Manlio Selis youth tournament, took stock of Inter: “Even we cannot explain an unacceptable difference in performance between the league and the Cups. For me it is a question of head, because the workforce is not in question.”

“The coach is a great professional, and he is the first to know that our league balance is insufficient: you cannot lose 11 games. But he still rules the team, otherwise we would not have won the Super Cup, we would not be in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and in the semifinals of the Coppa Italia. I like to talk cold, and I never stop talking. I tried to understand, to listen. At the Pinetina we then repeated to each other that we can only get out of a situation like this by staying united. We cannot lose compactness. I have total confidence, I am positive by nature. Having said that the one with Benfica is an essential match for the present and the future. Woe betide if we trust the 0-2 in the first leg: if we do, we will have everything to lose. A huge opportunity that cannot slip away, and I am convinced that we will make it. To our fans I just say thank you. We will not disappoint them.”
