2: Juan Riquelme
For me Javier Zanetti is one of Serie A greatest captain, he has lead Inter Milan to several championships, he is known for his versatility and willingness to do anything for his club.
Normally noted as a LB, Zanetti is able to advance his roles to CMF, LWF, CB etc, however with such a powerful defensive team that Inter have at their disposals, Zanetti now a days just usually spends his time at the left.
Zanetti went onto win the treble last season as he won the Italian League, Italian Cup and the Champions League.
he is currently 36 years of age, and he is stronger now then he ever was, Inter Milan's main problem now is not whether they can find themselves a suitable REPLACEMENT but can they find themselves a better captain.
