Wesley Sneijder June 2011: “I love Inter with all my heart, but I don’t know if I’ll stay. The Inter fans have always treated me very well. They were wonderful and I want to simply thank them,”
“Only God will decide where my future lies. I can be certain of one thing: if I remain at Inter, then I will give my all to win everything again.”
“Cristiano Ronaldo June 2008: “What do you want me to say? That I’m going or I’m staying? I don’t know about the future, only God knows it. I can’t say any more.
“Am I motivated to continue at United? I am always motivated. I am ambitious and I want to always improve. I don’t know the future but I will be motivated.”
None of this means Sneijder’s going anywhere of course- after all even Ronaldo gave United another season after his non-comittal in 2008.
Sneijder’s statement could mean any number of things, although you’d be hard pressed to argue its an emphatic declaration he’s determined to stay in Milan.
