Inter Milan boss Stramaccioni admits: I can't select Sneijder

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni admits there's problems around Wesley Sneijder's contract. Inter chief Marco Branca says the Dutchman won't play for the club again unless he takes a pay-cut.

"I speak daily with both Wesley and the President. I know the situation," said Coach Stramaccioni.

"I think it is simpler than people may think. Over the summer Inter decided to have some very clear guidelines that we wanted to use throughout the transfer campaign.

"Within this idea of the club, that must be respected and shared, we have to understand the position of the player.

"I have enormous respect for Wesley as a player and a man, but right now my position as Coach is not to use him as a technical decision based on what I see in training. That is my evaluation, obviously hoping they can sit round a table and the situation can be resolved.

"Having said that, I will go to Parma with the best players at my disposal and decide not to use Sneijder."
