Inter Milan have banned star midfielder Wesley Sneijder from using Twitter, his wife said on Friday.
The Netherlands international uses his social media account to interact with over one million followers.
Although he is yet to be involved in any incident of note on the site, his wife tweeted the news that he will no longer be using the online tool.
“My husband, @sneijder101010, can no longer write on Twitter,” she said on her own account.
“It is a decision from the club. They said he cannot even support or compliment the team. I am sad because he always gives his best for the team with all of his heart.
“It is odd, but it is okay. You will all see how Wesley will return to winning ways with Inter.”
Sneijder remains on the sidelines after picking up a thigh injury against Chievo in September.
