Wesley Sneijder won't be fit for the Club World Cup Final, but urged his Inter teammates to “win it for me too.”
The unlucky Dutchman only managed to play under a minute of football in Abu Dhabi, as straight away he limped off with a muscular problem during the 3-0 semi-final win over Seongnam.
“I am staying with the squad,” he told Inter Channel ahead of Saturday's Final against Mazembe.
“We played a great game and it's important for the club, our fans and all of us to bring this trophy back to Milan.
“If my teammates win it, then they win it for me too. I also want to thank all the fans who have been so close to me in this difficult moment.”
