Andrea Stramaccioni has once again insisted that any decision over Wesley Sneijder’s availability rests entirely with him.
The Dutch international, 28, has been frozen out of the squad after refusing to sign a new contract.
Technical director Marco Branca said Sneijder would not play until the deal was agreed but coach Stramaccioni told a press conference on Wednesday that he is tired of the situation.
“I think I’ve already spoken too much about the argument,” he said. “All of the decisions made about all of my players are made exclusively down to my evaluations.
“If the Dutchman plays or if he is named in the squad then it will be because of my decisions and nobody else’s.
“I’ll take the responsibility, he’s training with his team-mates, he’s doing well and I hope to not have to answer any more questions on the subject.”
