Javier Zanetti – San Siro hero

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Long ago number four shirt Zanetti
Was deemed to weak as a trainee
Shedload of medals in the Inter jersey
Boots hang after a sixteenth trophy

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The first signing for Signor Moratti
Was Ambrogino d’Oro Zanetti
Hundred forty five caps for the Albiceleste
Madrid crown for Internazionale

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Always that same hair combed by “pupi”
First Calcio captain to lift a treble solely
After nineteen years with the Nerazurri
Hero joins Fachetti, Bergomi, Materazzi

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 number7

Today Javier Zanetti plays his last Inter game away to Chievo. What a servant he’s been to the club.
