Gasp: 'Sneijder can change role'

Gian Piero Gasperini tested out two Inter systems today and assures “Wesley Sneijder can play in various different positions.”

There were question marks over how the Dutchman would fit into Gasperini's tactics, but he played in central midfield during today's 6-1 win over Mezzocorona.

“Sneijder does not need to adapt,” insisted the Coach who tested out both a 3-4-3 and a 4-3-3.

“He played very well in that position and can comfortably stay there. He dictated the play, had vision and even scored.

“Sneijder can play in various different positions. I'm very satisfied with the first week of training, as these lads are doing great work.”

Dejan Stankovic bet “a beer and a pizza” that Sneijder would stay at Inter, despite interest from Manchester United.

“In that case, we're having pizza,” smiled Gasperini.
