Javier Zanetti given a week's rest

Medical tests for captain after Palermo incident. Diagnosis: post-traumatic pneumothorax

APPIANO GENTILE - Javier Zanetti has been prescribed a week's rest after undergoing further medical tests at the training ground this morning following Sunday's incident in the final minutes of Palermo-Inter. The Inter medical team have diagnosed post-traumatic pneumothrorax (of a mild nature) and the captain is therefore unavailable for Wednesday evening's Serie A Week 4 match against Bari at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Rafael Benitez's players finished off their preparations for the midweek clash with a classic pre-match session. Amantino Mancini, Thiago Motta, Obiora Nwankwo and Nelson Rivas (double training for all four today) did not work with their team-mates.

The twenty-one players called up for tomorrow's game will report back to the training ground this evening.
