Inter fans back the team

Inter's Curva Nord has responded to Javier Zanetti's calls to see through the media criticism and back the team for the remainder of the season.

Inter have come under immense criticism after they suffered heavy back-to-back defeats to Milan and Schalke.

Thursday's La Gazzetta dello Sport claimed that it's the end of a cycle at Inter and suggested that Leonardo and several first team players be replaced.

Last night, Zanetti told the 'real Inter fans' to ignore the media backlash and make their own minds up about the situation.

A statement released on the behalf of the Curva Nord indicates that they have heeded the captain's words.

"The responsibility of the defeats to Milan and Schalke must be shared between the club, the Coach and the players, but we will be with Inter until death does us part.

"We only ask that the players finish the season like men and fight until the last second in Germany. Then we'll see how it ends.

"This team has got us used to great achievements. We believe. We want you to believe too."
