Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti plans to play on next season.

He turned 39 in August and is already older than Coach Andrea Stramaccioni.

"My objective is to play until I'm 40 years old and I certainly think I can do it," he told Radio 105.

"Are there too many games in quick succession nowadays? To recover quickly from one match to the next you have to immerse yourself in ice. It really helps."
