Milan: Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti says he would like to play again despite a potentially career-ending injury.

Zanetti ruptured his left Achilles tendon in Sunday's 1-0 loss to Palermo and is likely to be out for six months.

The defender turns 40 in August but says "after a career like mine, I'd like to play at least one more game in front of my fans, and I hope it's more than one."
