Inter have declared he won’t play again until he agrees to lower his wages, which has prompted some to suggest they are ‘bullying’ or even ‘blackmailing’ the Dutchman.
“In the current situation, I am deciding not to call Sneijder. He knows that. In other times, my appreciation for him as a player has been unequivocal and our personal rapport is also excellent, so I hope he can return.
“I must make choices that have nothing to do with his contract. Tomorrow there will be a meeting and I hope it’ll go well.
“Everyone must remember that Inter come before everything else. As for ‘bullying,’ I have a law degree and can tell you this situation does not qualify for breach of contract.”
