Wesley Sneijder could be ruled out for "some time" with a thigh injury, according to Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri.

New Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri has prepared himself to be without midfielder Wesley Sneijder for some time.

The Dutch international missed Saturday's 3-1 victory over Bologna and has also been ruled out of tomorrow's Champions League tie with CSKA Moscow because of a thigh injury.

The full extent of the problem is yet to be diagnosed but Ranieri has claimed that the 28-year-old could be out for "some time".

"Sneijder has not travelled to Moscow and this is a blow for us," Ranieri is quoted by ESPN as saying upon arrival in the Russian capital.

"My fear is that we will lose him for some time because his injury seems more serious than we first expected. We will wait to see what the doctors say."

The Blue and Blacks began their Champions League campaign with a 1-0 home loss at the hands of Trabzonspor.
