Zanetti: "Staying calm"


"Penalised by our mistakes, but not by the draw"

NICOSIA - Inter captain Javier Zanetti made these comments on Sky Sport Italia after Tuesday's Champions League draw with Anorthosis Famagusta:

"We wanted to win this match. Unfortunately, we didn't. We got a draw which is okay for our position in the table. We have to stay calm because the team did everything it had to do. We created lots of chances and scored three goals. There were a few mistakes that anyone can make and this penalised us a bit.

"There are situations like these when you concede five goals in two games, but the team has to stay calm and work like it knows how, because I think we can improve. You always have to play the match, whether it's against a Cypriot team or not.

"We're not disorientated by the change in formation. We work on tactics in the week and we believe in everything we do. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it doesn't, but the important thing is that the team does its best.

"I told Burdisso to stay calm. I'm sorry for what happened to him but these things happen to anyone to plays this game. He has great character and he will get over this easily. Julio Cruz is back with us and we will do everything to get Adriano back to do doing great again."
