Turkey - where former big-name players go to be forgotten.

How long is his contract? Since he wasn't that keen on this move in the first place, I could see him retire in a couple of years unless he finds a way out of Turkey.

Galatassaray has a relatively nice setup right now. Obviously the quality of the Turkish league is a level below the top four European leagues and naturally this eliminates him from any Balon D'Or or best player in the world talk...but that's not a conversation he was in anyway.

Fatih Terim is a manager I admire and hopefully with a motivated, first year Sneijder and a nice mix of talent .

They can be a darkhorse in the CL.

Yeah Galatasaraj isn't bad, but I still wonder... There's a valid point in that "money whore" comment - with a pay cut, Sneijder still could've gone basically anywhere.

Yeah, he isn't at his best anymore, but come on, he isn't even 30 yet, he could've gotten brilliant again with proper management and support. Plus he's a good playmaker, he's exactly the kind of player that almost all the EPL clubs need.

Could've been brilliant at any of the top6 PL clubs, if he had just taken a tiny paycut. Then again, who knows if they would've bought Sneijder, after all, he#s a midfielder, and they don't like those Razz

Also: he was signed by Inter for 15M, 8M is not a crazy price considering he is 4 years older and more plagued by injuries, all personality issues aside.
I don't get the sneijder underrating... He has been a big player in big games in UCL and World CUP, he lead Holland to a world cup final.. he's only 28, it's not like a 35 retiring player... He was injured in the last period. He wasn't given Ballon d'or or something, i don't know why you say it's most overrated player..

Like i said, if I was the one many 200k a week, I would gladly be called money whore for not wanting to decrease my standing of life. Reality is Sneijder is not elite anymore, not a matter of ability obviously, but if he doesnt have the mindset to compete at the highest level anymore, then why bother? he is in his damn right to choose money over prestige because this is one of his last (very probably his last) big footy contract.

I can't believe people are calling him a money whore for NOT going to the EPL :facepalm:

So he should have went to a mid table team in Liverpool,a team who will very likely not be in the CL in the next few years and won't be challenging for the title instead of a team who will compete to WIN the league and compete in the CL most years. confused

The delusion of some people on here is incredible.

Well, he could've gone to lots of clubs. Or stayed at Inter.
I'm not advocating going to the PL per se, but surely, there must've been interest from more prestigious clubs than Galtasaray, no?

It's just a weird choice for a player who's only 28, and was on the Ballon d'Or shortlist like 3 seasons ago.

Agreed with Nick, if you see football as a job and not as a passion (which is how most footballers see it after a few years) then it makes perfect sense to go for the most lucrative offer considering their short career life. I've never understood why people criticize players for making as much money as they can.

Well, after a certain threshold of income, it really doesn't impact your lifestyle that much, how you make.

Most players tend to look more at the potential for glory (which might also later bring a raise, btw), than pure monetary gain.

I'm not even criticizing Sneijder, I'm just confused :p

but surely, you can sustain that lifestyle for a longer period of time with more money right? It's not a given that he will make that kind of money when he is 50, so why not stack up the money now.

Only conclusion i can come at, is that Sneijder doesnt care about "competing" anymore. Otherwise he would not have sunk so low in terms of his footy level. If his mind isnt into it anymore, then there is nothing to be done.

Surely there were clubs offering a more interesting challenge and a large global spot to shine on, but he did it all already. Maybe he feels content with how high he rised and figured he couldnt get past that level.

Where's the potential for glory at a club like Liverpool, Tottenham or Arsenal? It's not like he turned down United, Bayern or Barca to go to Galatasaray.

Well yeah, I agree with that, but that's what surprised me. I thought he would've put up more of a fight, was my point.

Incidently Sneijder wanted PL move before moving to Inter.He stalled the move back then too before eventually joining them.Only Aston Villa showed concrete interest in him back then lol strictly speaking in terms of PL clubs.

If you're talking about while he was with us...United was interested throughout. He was talked about as part of the Ronaldo deal but when we were under Calderon...but we didn't want to sell.

Ok fair enough lol excluding them.But he made Inter play a waiting game though.I dont think he was particularly interested in playing in Italy at first but then he had realized there werent many better options available than Inter.Not taking a dig at them but it was more to do with his arrogance more than anything.

I was under the impression that Sneijder and/or his wife weren't that keen on moving to Turkey? But since only Galatasaray were ready to pay him what he wanted, he chose to go there anyway.

Well say what you want about the Turkish League, their fans are insane, and more often than not, that insanity is expressed in a positive way. He certainly won't have to play in empty stadiums anymore, like he did in Italy.

Yea, I am sure Sneijder is excited about travelling to Buraspor when his wife gets kidnapped and his kids need 10 body guards going to school rofl

Turkey = 3rd rate bullshit retirement house

He would have been Joe Cole II anyways......

I am sure he'd rather go to Gala instead of the 3rd best possession team in the world Laughing

Most Liverpool fans didn't want him anyway. Why sign a player on decline who wants massive wages. Better of waiting for a better option. We've wasted enough money.

I'm pretty sure Turkey is still safer than all of South America, and you still see comments like that, when talking about Neymar or whoever.

Empty Stadiums? Serie A has above 22k attendances average which isn't optimal for a top league but far from empty. Plus the fans who are within the stadium create a fantastic atmosphere with the banners, flares and tifo capi as it is.

Ever even watched the Turkish league? It has entertaining football, twice as good as an atmosphere as anywhere in England and chances for CL.

Why would he join Liverpool when we have close to none chance of making the Champions League this season? 3rd best possession team? I doubt that is such a driving force in motivating him. Plus he wouldn't be good enough.
