Zanetti: 'I'll play until I'm 40'

Inter captain Javier Zanetti reveals he has no intention of retiring until he turns 40. “I am happy with the career I've had.”

The Argentine has been with his club since 1995 and at the age of 37 won the Treble plus Club World Cup.

“In all honesty, I have never spoken to my family about retirement,” he told FCInterNews.it.

“I am receiving the fruits of what football has given me. These are the last years of my career and I want to make the most of all the opportunities I have.”

Admired for his loyalty during tough times, Zanetti has now become a symbol of a dominant Inter.

“I am happy with the way my career went. I still feel good physically and want to be of use to Inter and Argentina.

“My intention is to play at least until I'm 40, then I'll consider what to do.”
