Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti paid tribute to skipper Javier Zanetti after he played his 600th game against Lecce last night.

Moratti said: "You cannot expect such a high number of matches. I expected a good player and he surpassed our expectations. He's a good person, a great player, who will remain in the memory of all Inter fans in the future.

"He still has the ability to play another 600, because physically he is getting even stronger!"
