Inter Captain Javier Zanetti Hails Important Victory Over Chelsea

The Argentine believes his side deserved the win...
Inter defender Javier Zanetti might be satisfied with his side's 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the first leg of the round of 16 Champions League clash, but is disappointed that the Nerazzurri conceded a goal at home.

The Argentine's sole focus was on the match against the Blues and not the Serie A.

"The result and the way we played were both positive. Inter deserved the victory because of these reasons," the defender told after the match. "The disappointing thing is that it got to 1-1, but we quickly reacted and arrived at the victory.

"This is a Champions League match, and not one in the domestic competition. We only thought about our own match, and not that of Milan closing the gap on us. There is still a long way to go.

"The players also know that there is a return match to be played in London, and we must be prepared for this," concluded Zanetti.
