Manchester United target Sneijder does not fit into Gasperini's playing formation.
“I see Sneijder as a forward,” confirmed Gasperini. “He is one of the most important players in the world right now and I hope he can have an exceptional campaign.
“We do have a large squad and I consider Sneijder to be a forward, although obviously he can be used in different roles when needed. We have numerous options and this is why I have great faith in this team.”
It is reported the Dutchman will be dropped for Sunday night’s trip to Palermo, as he’ll then take cup-tied Diego Forlan’s place in the Champions League.
“I made a bet with Wesley. Last season he scored four goals in 25 games, while I am convinced he’ll have more. The position isn’t a problem, as we have a basic structure and can place many variations upon it. This controversy is stirred up by the media, as it’s not as if Inter will collapse if Sneijder doesn’t play.”
