June 13 In an interview with Di Marzio, Sneijder talked about
to his career.
Evaluate your playing career
Sneijder: I could have become a player like Messi or Ronaldo, I just didn’t care that much (in terms of self-discipline).
I’m enjoying life, maybe a few extra glasses of wine with dinner.
Messi and Ronaldo are different, they have made a lot of sacrifices (for their careers), which is admirable.
Still, my career has been just as incredible.
Sneijder: I’ve started working with young people in recent months and I love helping them grow.
However, in life, like football, anything is possible.
Owners, coaches…anything can happen.
Am I being low key?
Yes, at least for now.
At 35, you still have passion for playing football
Sneijder: Yes, if given the right opportunity, I will be ready to put on my boots and complete the "last dance".
Who is the strongest teammate you have experienced in your career?
Sneijder: Guti, he is too good.
A true midfield elite.
When we first became teammates, he didn’t speak to me for a few months because I took his place as Real Madrid’s starter.
After we played together, I realized he was a phenomenon, the best player on this team.
Best goal of your career?
Sneijder: It was the quarter-finals of the World Cup in South Africa. We were playing against Brazil. At that time, Robben took a corner kick.
After leaving Inter Milan, I still pay attention to Inter Milan
Sneijder: Conte has a strong lineup, and Eriksson is also in the team. In the end, he can help the team achieve a leap.
Christian did well at Ajax, then went to Tottenham and now he needs to prove himself in Italy.
He plays at a high level and with his attributes, he could easily be the leader of the new team.
Talk about Inter Milan’s No. 10
Sneijder: Lautaro is very strong, as far as I am concerned, he should stay in Italy.
He can be one of the best, but first he needs to win something with Inter.
Even if he still has time to do everything well, it is right to take the time to make the leap.
He can go to Barcelona to play, of course, if he really wants to go, I would rather he play for Real Madrid.
So if Lautaro leaves, who will replace him?
Sneijder: Cavani, he certainly can.
He can score goals and make an impact in any league.
If Marotta can introduce him, he can bring extraordinary firepower to the striker.
Sneijder: His strength is very strong, there is nothing to say about this.
His ability can be ranked among the best strikers in the world, but he has made some choices, which I don’t agree with, but the beauty of this world is that everyone has his own way.
Will Brescia be his last chance?
I have no idea.
All I know is that a guy like him can always make a big impact.
