PIATRA NEAMT – Inter won 2-0 in Romania on the night Javier Zanetti celebrated his 800th appearance for the Nerazzurri. The captain spoke of his satisfaction at the end of the game: “I feel happy and very proud to have reached such an important milestone and to have done so at a prestigious club like Inter, even more so as captain.
“I thank coach Stramaccioni for his kind words in yesterday’s press conference, we have a very good relationship. As ever though, the most important thing for me is to feel like I’m helping the team. This evening we got a very good result but we can’t think we’re already through. Vaslui are a big side and they’re good going forward so we need to be careful. Chivu told us what sort of atmosphere to expect here tonight and this certainly helped.”
