Wesley Sneijder doesn’t like that he of the Dutch football association (KNVB) not goodbye to take of the british public in the international match against England or Portugal. “The time was fantastic”, says Sneijder in conversation with the NIS.
Sneijder decided to stop with his interlandcarrière after a conversation with the new coach Ronald Koeman. The record international (133 matches) would have liked to say goodbye in a way like Arjen Robben, who after the world cup-kwalificatieduel with Sweden was waved off. “It’s not about me, it’s important that I put together with the fans a moment to say goodbye. I am fifteen years continuously. I think that a farewell such as Robben has been for me at his place”, says a somewhat hurt Sneijder.
The 33-year-old midfielder can sometime also be able to understand. “A new coach wants his new group together. No contest that in the character of me. It is what it is, I go there also not that hard to do.”
