The promising youngster has singled out the Argentine midfielder as an example to follow, and is eagerly anticipating the match versus JuventusMarco Benassi has revealed that Inter team-mate Esteban Cambiasso is a role model for him, while he has also hailed Javier Zanetti's role in his development.
The promising midfielder, 18, recently made his first-team debut at the Nerazzurri, and he is determined to prove his worth in the remainder of the 2012-13 campaign.
"All my team-mates have helped me in my development, though obviously no one's got as much experience as Zanetti and Cambiasso," Benassi told Mediaset.
"Who do I look to as my role model? In my position I'd say Cambiasso.
"At the moment I'm just focused on doing as well as I possibly can, then in July I'll sit down with the club and we'll decide what to do next season."
The midfielder then looked ahead to the Serie A clash against Juventus after the international break, and stressed that Inter will do their utmost to get a good result against their rivals.
He added: "We have an important match coming up against Juventus, historically there's a lot of rivalry there and we have to try and get a good result."
Benassi has made eight official appearances for Inter so far.
