MILAN, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Inter Milan captain Javier
Zanetti was allowed to return home with the squad after having
hospital tests on chest pains following Sunday's 2-1 win at
"It's nothing to worry about. He is returning to Milan with
us," Inter coach Rafael Benitez told Sky television.
The 37-year-old Argentine continues to astound fans with his
all-action displays despite his age and his decision to stay on
the pitch despite significant pain sums up his professionalism.
"I took a blow from a ball in my lower abdomen but I
couldn't stop despite the great pain, we were winning," he joked
to Inter's TV channel.
"When I went back into the dressing-room my chest felt
blocked so I called the doctor and we went to hospital for some
precautionary checks. I want to reassure everyone I'm fine."
