Zanetti on rejecting Madrid

Inter legend Javier Zanetti has revealed why he decided to reject a move to Real Madrid.

The Argentine midfielder played his last home game at San Siro on Saturday night after a 19-year career in Milan.

And after the 4-1 win over Lazio, the veteran has admitted why he opted to stay with the Nerazzurri.

“All the moments I experienced with this jersey were fantastic. Even in the difficult times I tried to honour this shirt,” he told Mediaset Premium.

“How do I want to be remembered? As a good person.

“I was convinced that our time had to come. I couldn’t leave without winning here and I was proved right.

“There will be a commemorative game, but this was my last competitive match at San Siro.”
