Inter Milan skipper Javier Zanetti says he was unaffected by early season criticism.
Inter ended Juventus' 49-match unbeaten run in Serie A last night.
â€śFootball has moments and last season things went badly, so most of the criticism was aimed at me and Esteban Cambiasso. Maybe itâ€™s because weâ€™re older. I have always run hard and will continue to do so until I canâ€™t do it anymore," shrugged Zanetti.
â€śThe club knows the moment I realise that the team doesnâ€™t need me or that I cannot help them, then I will step aside. I am proud to wear the captainâ€™s armband and my teammates make me feel important to them.â€ť
