MILAN, Italy -- Still in the middle of a contract dispute with Inter Milan, playmaker Wesley Sneijder is injured again.

Inter says on its website that the Netherlands international sat out training Friday with a leg muscle problem.

Sneijder hasn't played for Inter since September. First he was sidelined for two months with another injury, but then Inter technical director Marco Branca said last month that Sneijder wouldn't play again until he made a decision about his future, with a new deal reportedly requiring him to take a pay cut.

Last week, global footballers' union FIFPro highlighted Sneijder's recent exclusion and called for talks about clubs using "blackmail behaviour" to force players into signing new contracts.

A meeting between Sneijder with club officials Monday did not resolve the situation.
