'Always tension before big matches'

Inter captain Javier Zanetti has admitted he is nervous ahead of their clash with Juventus at the weekend.

The Nerazzurri play the Bianconeri on Saturday, and the Argentine defender has claimed that his side have a ‘great desire’ to win the match.

“You always feel a tension before an important match,” he told reporters. “I am just sorry I can’t play.

“Juventus are a great team, but we will try hard to beat them. [Coach Walter] Mazzarri is a hard worker and will do his best.

“At the beginning of the season I was struck by the young players especially. They all have a great desire to do well.”
