Zanetti wants coaching role at Inter

Inter Milan veteran Javier Zanetti plans on taking up a coaching role at the club once he calls time on his playing career.

• Blog: Standing out from the crowd

The 39-year-old club captain has shown little sign of succumbing to age, having started all but one of the Nerazzurri's 18 Serie A games so far this season.

However, when the time finally comes for the man who skippered Inter to their historic league, cup and Champions League treble in 2010 to hang up his boots, Zanetti has his sights set on remaining at the club he joined in 1995.

"The club has given me a lot. My life is now in Italy and when I stop playing I will coach at Inter," he told Ole. "It is all settled, I was good for the club all these years and that will continue in a new role. I will remain in Milan with my family."

Zanetti plans on staying in Italy rather than return to his native Argentina, although he will continue to make regular trips to his homeland in order to complete work for the children's charity set up by himself and his wife.

"I often return to Argentina, but only for events or activities related to the Fondacion Pupi," he said. "And so it will continue to be."
