Javier Zanetti unveiled a very special Inter captain’s armband for his last San Siro game tonight.
This evening against Lazio will be Zanetti’s final Serie A match at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, as he’s hanging up his boots at the end of the season.
The 40-year-old revealed via Facebook that his armband for tonight will be yellow with the message ‘Zanetti 4 Ever.’
It will also have crammed on the names of all his Nerazzurri teammates during these 19 years at the club.
“I had wanted to put the names of all the real protagonists of my adventure at Inter, in other words the fans,” said ‘Pupi.’
“As that was not possible, I put the names of my teammates, who were equally important for me and my career.”
Curiously, once again Zanetti made the announcement on the Twitter account of his restaurant in Milan and not via the official Inter page.
