Wesley Sneijder officially missed training with Inter due to a calf problem, but his wife Yolanthe revealed on Twitter “he’s not injured!”
The tense situation continues to escalate and it is widely reported in Italy that Sneijder is determined to force a January transfer.
He already broke the club-imposed Twitter embargo this week by announcing he was not in the squad for their Europa League game against Neftci.
On Friday an official note on the club website stated Sneijder had skipped training due to a calf problem and had physiotherapy instead.
However, on Friday evening his wife Yolanthe Cabau responded to fans on her Twitter account who were asking after Wesley’s health. “He’s not injured! Wesley is just fine.”
When supporters asked her to convince Sneijder not to abandon the ship, she replied: “Believe me, that’s not the problem... He loves Inter... We’ll see.”
The Dutch midfielder has been told he won’t play until he agrees a new contract with Inter, reducing his current €6m per season wages.
