APPIANO GENTILE - Enthusiastic as ever, Javier Zanetti is ready for another season with his Inter side as he explained to Inter Channel as the Nerazzurri set off for their training camp in Pinzolo. "We're ready to go again, and we want to start the season as best we can. We'll work hard so we're ready for our opening games of the season."
There are a lot of young players in Andrea Stramaccioni's squad, something which brought a smile to the captain's face. "Yes, there are loads of them, apart from me of course! All jokes aside, these lads have shown what they're capable of, and now we all hope they'll continue to do so. We, the 'older', more experienced guys, need to help them to develop."
With the new Nike 2012/13 kit already on, Zanetti took a moment to reflect on things: "It always means a lot to wear these colours, as we embark on a new season. I hope that's the case not only for me, but for the whole squad."
Finally, the captain had a few words for the fans who are already waiting for Inter in Pinzolo. "Guys, we're on our way. Wait for us as ever, we need every single one of you."
