Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti hailed his team's quality after their 3-1 win at Juventus.

Zanetti declared "an historic victory" to terminate the 49-match unbeaten Juventus run in Serie A.

"Yes, it is a historic victory, above all for the strength of our opponents. We knew Juventus were unbeaten in a long time and deserved to be top of the table," he said.

"We started on a path and have slowly gone along it. We came here to play our game with pride, heart and determination.

"We aim to become a great team and I believe the path we are on is the right one. We are a new squad who want to be fighting for the Scudetto come the end of the season."

"We knew that we had to face this game with great character, even when things do not go your way. The victory was deserved."
