After Champions League, Zanetti wants Club World Cup

The Inter Milan captain says he is determined to raise aloft the Club World Cup at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi next month.

Javier Zanetti, the Inter Milan captain, says he is determined to relive the experience of lifting the Champions League trophy last season by raising aloft the Club World Cup at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi next month. 

Zanetti and his Inter teammates will arrive in the UAE capital in early December to compete in the Club World Cup, the annual intercontinental championship that pits the champions of each confederation against one another.

”It's the kind of moment you always dream about, but when it actually happens you do things instinctively,” Zanetti said. “I hope I get the chance again in Abu Dhabi.”
