Inter vice-president Javier Zanetti has played down speculation linking coach Roberto Mancini with a summer switch to Arsenal.

Although the Italian spent four largely successful seasons in the Premier League with Manchester City, the Argentine emphasised how committed he and everyone else are to Inter finishing out their Serie A campaign strong.

“The club is clearly committed to him and even Roberto is keen to remain with us,” the Inter legend remarked.

“Right now we are focused on the end of our season as it will be very challenging, but I think we will be able to press forward.”

Since Inter’s title challenge began to falter at the turn of the year, rumors have spread that Mancini might be on his way out.

Though he’s firmly denied the reports and the club has backed him publically, there remains a lingering sense that his future could take him away from Milan.

The Nerazzurri will look to continue their charge for third place on April 3 when they welcome Torino to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
