Inter midfielder Wesley Sneijder is suffering from Anaemia.

The Dutchman described his fears when he started to feel weak during the Brescia draw on Saturday.

"Five minutes before the end of the first half I started shaking and felt pain in all my body, it was something I had never experienced before," he told De Telegraaf.

"After when I went into the dressing room I passed out and I was very scared. They controlled my blood pressure and heart rate immediately and then I went to Holland for further tests.

"The conclusions were that I am Anaemic and my whole body is very tired. I need plenty of rest."

Sneijder was left out of the squad by coach Rafael Benitez for Wednesday's trip to Lecce.
