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: âZanetti is an extraordinary champion. A true great. He is not just a great player, but a great man.
âHe was the one who helped me more than anyone when I was at Inter.
âI have no doubt that he can come back from this.
âThere is a risk, but I sure hope he can come back.â
