Wesley Sneijder is out of action for a month after the Inter star suffered a thigh strain. “I’ll get back soon and even stronger!”
The Dutchman limped off during the opening half-hour of their 2-0 win at Chievo on Wednesday evening.
Tests have now confirmed a second-degree tear in the left thigh muscle, an injury that will keep him out for around a month.
It’ll rule Sneijder out of the Milan derby, among other important matches.
“I will work hard to get back soon and even stronger!!! Thanks for all the support!!! Appreciate that...” he wrote on his Twitter feed.
Rodrigo Palacio is also suffering from muscular problems and will not be fit for Sunday’s clash with Fiorentina.
