Lucescu tribute to injured Inter Milan captain Zanetti

Former Inter Milan coach Mircea Lucescu has paid tribute to Javier Zanetti.

The Argentine has had his torn Achilles tendon operated on this week.

Shakhtar Donetsk boss Lucescu said: "Zanetti is an extraordinary champion. A true great. He is not just a great player, but a great man.

"He was the one who helped me more than anyone when I was at Inter.

"I have no doubt that he can come back from this.

"There is a risk, but I sure hope he can come back."
