Inter captain Javier Zanetti says he screamed out load when he saw Nicolas Burdisso’s horror injury on Tuesday night.
The Roma defender, a former teammate of Zanetti’s at club and international level, damaged knee ligaments in Argentina’s midweek clash in Colombia.
“I’m really disappointed for him,” the Argentine legend stated. “I was watching the game live and I started to shout out loud when I saw the dynamics of the injury.
“I instantly knew how serious it was. Nevertheless, Nico has a lot of will power and I know he will recover as soon as possible.”
Burdisso’s season has already come to an end.
