Zanetti: Inter aiming for the top

Inter captain Javier Zanetti has admitted that the Nerazzurri are aiming for the summit of Serie A after winning six of their first eight games.

Andrea Stramaccioni's men continued their impressive form on Sunday as they beat Catania 2-0 at San Siro, and the Argentine defender has confirmed that the club are hoping to chase down Juventus at the top of the League.

“There is an awareness  that the team has all the means to do well,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “We want to finish as high as possible, but we will have to see what happens.

“Our intention is to continue to grow as a group, and as a team. We are slowly rising up the table and playing very well.”

He also commented on the club's Coach, who is two years younger than Zanetti, and the future of fellow countryman Ricardo Alvarez.

“Stramaccioni has very clear ideas of how he wants us to play. With him we hope to reach the very top.

“Alvarez played very well against Catania, and it was only because of bad luck he didn't score. He has done everything the Coach has asked of him, and learned how to play in Italy. He will certainly be one of our main players in the future.”
