Javier Zanetti spoke with some journalists on the sidelines of an event of his "Fondacion Pupi". The vice-president of Inter has touched on several themes: from the compatriot Lautaro Martinez to the first place in the standings, passing through Antonio Conte. Here are his words.
FEET PER GROUND – Javier Zanetti is extremely happy with the first place achieved by Inter on Sunday. However, he invites everyone to remain calm: «It is an important moment, very positive. It is true that we are first in the standings, but we are aware that we still lack a lot. We have to keep working this way, I think the coach with the kids are doing a great job. We know that the Italian championship is very difficult, and already on Friday we face a very complicated team ( Roma , ed), we will have to make a great match » .
LAUTARO MARTINEZ – Zanetti then talked about Lautaro Martinez . Toro is one of the most in-form Nerazzurri players, with 5 goals scored in the last 8 days . Asked if he was surprised by his explosion, the former Inter captain responded as follows: "No, because when we chose it we were convinced that Lautaro Martinez could show all its value and everything it is demonstrating now. Last year he arrived, he worked very well, with great humility, he continues to do it. It is part of an important club heritage, it was an investment that looks to the future. We are all happy, just as we are happy with the whole team » .
AND THE BARCELONA? – Zanetti then turns off in the bud eventual market rumors that they want the 10th special observed from Barcelona . Here are his words: «I'm glad to see Lautaro Martinez very happy, wearing the Inter shirt. We must congratulate the whole team, all the boys are behaving in the best way, they are working with a dedication that can be seen on the pitch, the enthusiasm that is there, the team spirit that exists. And for this a great compliment must be paid to our coach » .
THE MISTER FOOTPRINT – Zanetti does not say he is surprised even for Inter's first place: "Honestly we were convinced to start an important path, with a very good coach, who has great experience. That as he lives the matches, the training, he manages to pass it on to the team. This is why we were aware that by doing a great job like the one you are doing we could fight, and I believe we are demonstrating it » .
ACCIDENTS – Injuries are a hot topic at Inter. However, Zanetti remains calm on possible returns on the market: «Above all, sorry for the guys who are having injuries, in such an important moment and above all in the same department. But I am convinced that we have clear ideas: if there is an opportunity, we will intervene in the next market. Always looking for players who can make the leap forward and fit well into this path. Ready players, who have the personality to play in Inter » .
THE RELATIONSHIP WITH CONTE – Zanetti then talked about his relationship with Antonio Conte : «I am really very happy with the work that Antonio is doing. Now that we have known each other, that we spend so much time together, I understand his work culture. We are happy with the guys we have in the team. We sincerely started a journey 4 months ago, and I believe that everything that is being seen in the field is the result of the work that Antonio is doing » .
DE PAUL – Finally, Zanetti's opinion on another fellow countryman, who has been close to Inter in recent times: « Rodrigo De Paul is a player who knows Italian football well, who has shown himself in recent years. But talking about the market now … very much missing. Also out of respect for the boys who are competing this season. We only think of Friday's game, which will be very complicated » .
