Inter Milan boss Ranieri casts doubt on Sneijder future: He doesn't fit in

Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri cast doubt over the future of Wesley Sneijder after hooking him in defeat to Lecce.

Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri cast doubt over the future of Wesley Sneijder after hooking him in defeat to Lecce.

Sneijder started the match, but he was substituted at half-time for Ricky Alvarez, shelving the 4-3-1-2 system.

“At the moment we are better with the 4-4-2 and this is why I took off Sneijder so we went back to the system we feel is more our own. Sneijder needs to be free to roam and I cannot force him to play out wide.

“He can play in a 4-4-1-1 or a diamond midfield, but at the moment that’s not going well for us. I tried that system today, but it didn’t bear fruit.

“Now we are three points off the Champions League places and that has to be our objective. The team had a great run up until now. It gets difficult because I have to find a way of introducing Diego Forlan and Sneijder, who can give us a step up in terms of quality.”
