Javier Zanetti has put his future on the line. “I’ll play against Juventus as if it were the last game. If Inter ask me to, I’ll step aside in June.”
The captain has listened to all the criticism of the old guard, particularly the ‘clan’ of Argentines in the locker room, and stands up to face it on Sunday night in Turin.
“Juve have the character of their Coach, Antonio Conte, and that is something we must watch out for.
“I will play against Juventus as if it were the last game. After seven seasons I will not lift a trophy and an era is ending for Inter, but it’s not true what some say that we don’t care about that,” said Pupi.
“If Inter ask me to, then I’ll step aside in June and will not hesitate to obey. I would like to stay in an important role within the club, though.”
The 38-year-old has been at Inter since 1995 and is their all-time record holder with 790 official appearances for the club.
