Inter veteran Stankovic urges Sneijder not to lose rag being played out of position

Dejan Stankovic admits Inter Milan teammate Wesley Sneijder "needs convincing" about being played out of position.

Inter coach Gian Piero Gasperini's 4-3-3 system does not include a spot for a trequartista, so Sneijder is finding himself in a deeper role.

"The way I see it, Wes just has to relax, as he can play anywhere in the Inter midfield. He just needs to convince himself of that," Stankovic told Sky Sport Italia.

"He is not at all my competitor for a midfield place, as I do not see my teammates as rivals. Gasperini is spoilt for choice this season, as we have a great squad.

"We play so many games between Serie A, the Champions League and Coppa Italia that nobody can think about playing every single one. Well, nobody except Javier Zanetti!"
