Inter Milan coach Mourinho fed-up with Vieira injuries

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho is fed-up with the injuries suffered by veteran midfielder Patrick Vieira.

"Patrick Vieira is out, as once again he picked up an injury when on international duty," snapped Mourinho.

"When I was at Chelsea there were French players there and it was always the same story. They go on international duty and come back injured.

"The wise thing would be to leave the player alone for a few months to work on his fitness at club level, then call him back when the qualifiers resume in 2009. But I bet you Vieira will be named in the France squad for November's friendly anyway."
