Sneijder rules out return to Real Madrid
Monday 08 November 2010
Internazionale playmaker Wesley Sneijder has ruled out making a return to former club Real Madrid later on in his career.
The 26-year-old Netherlands international spent two seasons at the Bernabeu before heading to Italy in the summer of 2009 and felt that he was not treated well during his time with Real.
He told L’Equipe: “Me back at Madrid? It's impossible. I don't want to go back to a club that treated me badly.
“I will never ever play for Real Madrid again. I can't act as if nothing happened. For me, Madrid is ancient history.
“After the Champions League I came across (Real president) Florentino Perez in the stands.
“He congratulated me. 'You deserve it,' he said. I just said thank you and shook his hand. I am not the kind for revenge.”
