Sneijder declares retirement from professional football

The Netherlands’ most-capped player Wesley Sneijder announced on Monday his retirement from football, bringing down the curtain on a trophy-laden career that spanned 17 years.

The 35-year-old, who played 134 times for his country, made the announcement while speaking to the YouTube channel of his hometown club FC Utrecht after having bought a corporate box at their stadium.“My connection to the town is big. Now I’ve retired from football I want a nice place to share my memories,” he said.

Sneijder’s career included a World Cup runners-up medal as well as Champions League, La Liga and Serie A titles.

The playmaker had successful spells with Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Galatasaray after having graduated from Ajax’s academy in 2002.

His final club was Al Gharafa in Qatar’s top-flight.

For his national side he was a losing finalist at the 2010 World Cup to Spain before a last four exit to Argentina four years later. He retired from international football last year.
