Inter Milan president Moratti slams Sneijder Ballon d'Or snub

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti is stunned by Wesley Sneijder's Ballon d'Or snub.

Sneijder was initially among the favourites for the prestigious individual award, but missed out on the final cut at the expense of Barcelona trio Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

Asked for his reaction to the news, Moratti said: "It's a profoundly unjust decision. Sneijder did a lot more than Messi last season.

"He was a protagonist in a phenomenal year. He won everything that he could have won.

"For me, Sneijder deserved the Ballon d'Or."
