Sneijder and Coutinho ‘leave’ Inter

Inter have allowed Wesley Sneijder and Philippe Coutinho to end the year early – even if they still have two games left to play.

The duo worked with the squad on Tuesday, but will be permitted to quit training from tomorrow ahead of the Christmas break.

Sneijder has been given permission given that he has been dropped by boss Andrea Stramaccioni in recent weeks following a contract dispute.

The Brazilian meanwhile has been given some extra time to prepare for his wedding.

Inter take on Verona in the Coppa Italia tonight, while they will face Genoa at home on Saturday.

Inter squad for Verona tie: 12 Luca Castellazzi, 27 Vid Belec, 77 Raffaele Di Gennaro; 4 Javier Zanetti, 6 Matias Silvestre, 23 Andrea Ranocchia, 25 Walter Samuel, 26 Cristian Chivu, 31 Alvaro Pereira, 33 Ibrahima Mbaye, 40 Juan Jesus, 42 Jonathan, 55 Yuto Nagatomo; 11 Ricardo Alvarez, 14 Fredy Guarin, 17 MacDonald Mariga, 21 Walter Gargano, 41 Alfred Duncan; 8 Rodrigo Palacio, 22 Diego Milito, 99 Antonio Cassano, 82 Daniel Bessa, 88 Marko Livaja.
