Sneijder awaits Inter explanation

Wesley Sneijder expects to hold talks with Inter boss Claudio Ranieri later today regarding his substitution at Lecce.

The Dutchman started the tie at the Via Del Mare, but he was replaced at half-time in favour of Ricky Alvarez.

After the 1-0 defeat, Ranieri did admit that he does have a problem with using Sneijder in the 4-4-2 system which has aided the club’s recent revival.

“The substitution was the Coach’s decision,” the former Real Madrid man noted following the shock reverse.

“I’ll probably talk to him about it at some stage on Monday.

“I’m sorry that we lost against Lecce, but we’ll make up for it and we’ll win the next one.”

Inter are in action in midweek when they host Palermo at San Siro.

The Beneamata have dropped down to fifth in the standings – nine points behind leaders Juventus.
