Zanetti: "Ivan deserved a gift like that"

MILAN – They tried in every possible way to anger Javier Zanetti "but this
can happen in a difficult moment of a match," explained the captain to
Inter Channel. "Then I apologised to De Sciglio because he’s young and
nothing happened. As for the rest, tonight’s match was a thriller. We played a
great first half and going into the break at 1-1 is never easy. Then we let in
the second goal at the beginning of the second half, but we showed an excellent
reaction."

Inter v AC Milan was the last match for Ivan Cordoba: "It was a great gift
for him. He deserved the joy and a victory like this one, against AC Milan in a
packed San Siro. Coach Stramaccioni did the right thing sending him out on the pitch.
With a player like Cordoba you can only thank him for all that he’s done in
these colours. He’s like a brother to me. He’s always been there for me and for
the team in the rough moments, fighting and experiencing things that only we
know about. When he arrived in Milan we became very good friends. He’s golden.
I believe that a great man and a great professional is leaving the game. We’ll
miss him very much. I hope he stays close to this club."

Then some words for Diego Milito, a goal-scorer who has been ever more incisive
along the Nerazzurri’s path: "You just have to compliment him… and
luckily for us he’s wearing the Inter shirt. We’re all happy for him, also
because he deserves this joy as well."
