Internazionale's captain, Javier Zanetti, says he hopes to play again after rupturing an Achilles tendon in Sunday's 1-0 loss to Palermo.

The defender, who will be 40 in August, is likely to be out for six months but says: "I'd like to play at least one more game in front of my fans, and I hope it's more than one."

Zanetti joined Inter in 1995 from Argentinian club Banfield and has played more than 800 games for the club. His contract expires at the end of the season.
