Figo hopes for Sneijder resolution

Inter ambassador Luis Figo hopes the Wesley Sneijder situation will be resolved as soon as possible.

The Dutch playmaker has been in an embittered contract feud with the Nerazzurri, after the club refused to play him following his reluctance to accept a reduced wage.

But the former Portuguese international has admitted that he wants it all put to bed, as well as commenting on their next Europa League opponents CFR Cluj.

“Seeing a situation like this is difficult for the team and for the player,” he told reporters “Hopefully it will be resolved in the best way possible.

“And then in February he can help the team move forward.

“But all that depends on the choice made by the Coach.

“We do not know if this is a favourable draw or not,” he added. “We will only know that if we win.

“Cluj were in the Champions League and are the champions of their country.

“They have similarities to [Inter's fellow group opponents] Rubin Kazan, but I believe we can deal with their strengths.”
