Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti is confident Ricky Alvarez is now establishing himself in coach Andrea Stramaccioni's plans.

Fellow Argie Alvarez has flattered to deceive for Inter since his arrival last year.

"Alvarez played very well against Catania, and it was only because of bad luck he didn't score. He has done everything the Coach has asked of him, and learned how to play in Italy. He will certainly be one of our main players in the future," said Zanetti.
