Zanetti to start against Sampdoria?

Javier Zanetti could start his first game for Inter at the weekend since damaging his Achilles tendon last April.

The Argentine returned to action earlier this month, but his name could be back on the teamsheet for the encounter against Sampdoria on Sunday.

Boss Walter Mazzarri is expected to be without Yuto Nagatomo after he picked up a muscle strain in the 1-1 draw at Bologna.

Erick Thohir, who has bought 70 per cent of the club from Massimo Moratti, will be at San Siro as Inter President for the first time this weekend.

Zanetti, 40, was Moratti’s first signing in 1995.
