Inter captain Zanetti out with chest problem

BY foxsports • September 21, 2010

Still feeling the effects of a chest problem, 37-year-old Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti has been left off the squad for Wednesday's game against Bari.

He will also likely sit out Saturday's match against AS Roma.

Zanetti was taken to the hospital after getting hit by the ball during Sunday's 2-1 win over Palermo. He played a full 90 minutes but felt pain upon reaching the changing room.

It's unclear if he will return for next week's Champions League game against Werder Bremen.

Zanetti recently extended his contract with Inter through to the 2012-13 season.
