Javier Zanetti believes Inter will make "sacrifices" next season

Inter Milan Vice-President Javier Zanetti is sure Inter “will make sacrifices” next season to conform to FIFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations next season.

The Nerazzurri’s recent Serie A campaign can be viewed as a failure only acquiring Europa League football. Having failed for Champions League football the Nerazzurri also missed out on a huge amount of money which in turn is significantly lower compared to Europa League meaning this transfer market Inter need to be very particular and spend only where they need to.

In recent weeks the job of current Inter Milan coach, Roberto Mancini has been in the balance though according to Zanetti, he and Mancini, “Share a desire to improve the team to return to being protagonists” he confirmed speaking at the Alfa Romeo Museum.

The Vice-President continued and believes Inter needs to change from “the base we have, and hope there’s no need to sell,” however in his eyes is, “very complicated because to meet our commitments we have to make sacrifices.”

If that was not enough on the plate of the Inter Milan administration, Zanetti was also asked about the apparent investment by the Suning Group to which he answered, “Just the fact that there is interest from a group like that is important,” he believes, “It would be something extra to help grow the club.”
