JAKARTA – As the press conference began, Javier Zanetti was still thinking about the
thousands of Inter fans who greeted him and his team-mates at the airport: "An unbelievable reception, we’re very pleased, thanks ever so much. The next few days in Indonesia are going to make for a wonderful experience, it’s the first time I’ve been to this country and it’s a real honour. Thank you for the warmth you’ve shown. It’s been a tough season but we hope to make our fans happy, at least over the next few days," smiled the captain. "And then we’ll focus on next year with fresh energy."
Zanetti was also asked to comment on the possible signing of Rodrigo Palacio: "He’s someone I know well, we’re talking about a terrific player, he hasn’t just burst on the scene."
