The 35-year-old joined in the January transfer window after spending nine years at Lazio, but the season has not exactly gone to plan with Inter set to miss out on European football next season.

With two games left in Serie A, Inter sit eighth and even if they win their remaining games they cannot qualify for the Europa League.

And given that Rocchi is in the twilight of his career, this could have a bearing on whether the Italian opts to stay at the club.

"I don't know yet. We'll wait for the end of the season, I believe the club has other priorities," Rocchi told Sky Sport 24.

"Obviously we'll have fewer matches to play but I think these decisions need to be made after careful consideration. Where would I like to finish my career? Here at Inter. I've said that since day one, I'd like to stay here but we'll see."

Despite the obvious disappointment on how the season has gone, Rocchi still believes Andrea Stramaccioni is the right man to lead the team going forward.

"Yes, I think so. This has also been a year's experience for him to work out where he can improve. He's given everything and I think he did well until we had problems [with injuries], we all did," he said.

Inter play Genoa on Sunday with the latter needing a win to ensure top flight football next season.
