Sneijder wants to unmask Holland player who's leaking tactical plans

Holland's players are backing coach Bert van Marwijk despite calls from fans and the media for a fresh start after the World Cup finalists lost all three of their Group B matches. However, Wesley Sneijder, set to become the captain, was the first to stand up for his beleaguered coach. "We can't blame the coach for this, he did a great job for us in the last four years," the Inter Milan player said.

"But there are some issues in the squad that have to be solved first, like the player who is leaking to the press about our tactical plans before matches."

The 60-year-old Van Marwijk still has four years left on a contract that was extended last year and the Dutch FA (KNVB) remains convinced he is the right man to rejuvenate the team for the 2014 World Cup.
