Mourinho claims Vieira should be happy

The French veteran claims he could be forced to leave Inter in the January transfer window due to a lack of first-team football.

“Vieira has played 283 minutes since the start of the season,” said the Portuguese coach.

“He has played in six games, three of them from the start and three entering as a substitute.

“I understand that everyone would like to play more, but that is life. He has played more than (Sulley) Muntari, (Esteban) Cambiasso, (Wesley) Sneijder and only slightly less than (Javier) Zanetti, who always plays.”
