Inter star Javier Zanetti has stressed that he is proud to be part of the Nerazzurri and has congratulated the 2010 Champions League winners with their 104th anniversary.

The Giuseppe Meazza side were founded on March 9, 1908 in the back room of the L'Orologiaio restaurant in Milan.

"Being part of this beautiful family for so many years is a source of great pride. I can never stop thanking president Moratti for having given me this opportunity. Happy Birthday greetings to my dearest Inter," Zanetti was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"And over these many years it has been a great honour to share in the triumphs, but also the difficult times, with many directors, coaches, team-mates, staff members, and all the fans who love this club and who I thank for having always been so supportive.

"We are all special, because we are Interisti. So once again: Happy Birthday Inter, and may there be another 100 more years like these!"

Inter are currently preparing for Friday's Serie A game away against Chievo.
