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.''

Zanetti joined Inter in 1995 from Argentine club Banfield and has made more than 800 appearances for the Italian side.

The former Argentina international has helped Inter to a host of trophies, including five league titles, four Italian Cups and the 2010 Champions League.

Zanetti's contract with Inter expires at the end of the season.
