Stankovic: 'Snub is an open wound'

Dejan Stankovic spoiled Inter's Club World Cup party by confessing his bench role is "an open wound."

There is tension between Rafa Benitez and Stankovic, who scored in the semi-final against Seongnam, but only came on as a substitute for the Final with Mazembe.

“The fact I didn't play from the start is an open wound,” confessed the midfielder.

“I am very happy for the trophy we had been missing for four decades, for the President, the staff and all those close to us, but I cannot hide I was upset.

“I have always played with my heart and presented myself with heart. I wanted to be there from the start.”
