We will probably hear a lot about what Wesley Sneijder has to say as he is getting settled in his new adventure in Turkey with Galatasaray. The Dutch, in an interview, reveals that the reason why he did not go to another big European club.
“Why did I not go to one of the best European clubs? Because at this moment, I am not one of the top five players in Europe. Inter are also no longer one of the best five clubs in Europe. We were in 2010 when we won the Champions League. That is why I see going to Galatasaray as a step forward in my career. Here I will play regularly and this is also very important as the 2014 World Cup approaches. Choosing Galatasaray for economic reasons? If it is about money, I would stay at Inter. I had another two and a half years in my contract and I could just easily sit on the couch. I have been training very hard to keep myself in shape. And do not forget the day after my transfer to Inter, I played 70 minutes and we won 4-0 against Milan.”
