Amid dispute, Sneijder misses training with injury

Still in the middle of a contract dispute with Inter Milan,

playmaker Wesley Sneijder is injured again.

Inter says on its website that the Netherlands international sat

out training Friday with a leg muscle problem.

Sneijder hasn’t played for Inter since September. First he was

sidelined for two months with another injury, but then Inter

technical director Marco Branca said last month that Sneijder

wouldn’t play again until he made a decision about his future, with

a new deal reportedly requiring him to take a pay cut.

Last week, global footballers’ union FIFPro highlighted

Sneijder’s recent exclusion and called for talks about clubs using

”blackmail behavior” to force players into signing new


A meeting between Sneijder with club officials Monday did not

resolve the situation.
