Javier Zanetti assaulted and robbed in Argentina

A terrible story has been reported out of Buenos Aires on Saturday night involving Argentine legend Javier Zanetti.

The 40-year-old defender, who recently retired from Inter Milan in order to become a coach of the side, was assaulted at gunpoint along with his father.

According to local media agency Diario Popular, Zanetti was driving with his father in a 4×4 when they were stopped by armed gunmen, who pointed weapons at Zanetti and threatened to kill him.

Ultimately the Zanettis, who walked away from the incident unharmed, gave up their vehicle, but local reports say the men were quickly apprehended and arrested after Javier called the police to tell them what happened.
