Internazionale captain Javier Zanetti has backed Jose Mourinho to bring European glory back to the club.
Despite winning the Scudetto three years in a row, Inter have consistently failed to impress on the European stage, but Inter skipper Zanetti believes Mourinho is the man to change that.
“As soon as he put pen to paper on the contract, he called me, and that gave me great pleasure,” said Zanetti.
“We are getting a coach of great experience and Mourinho’s results speak for him. He is the right man so that Inter can continue their winning streak.
“We hope to achieve success in the Champions League too. I think we have the strength and the right squad to do very well in that tournament, without forgetting Serie A, where we can also continue our run.”
Zanetti believes Inter will be pushed hard on the domestic front next season by the likes of Roma, Juventus and Fiorentina.
He said: “I think Serie A will be even more balanced than last year. It certainly won’t be easy, but we will fight to the end.
