Sneijder: ‘If the button turns around, I will be fit within three months’ | NOW


Wesley Sneijder was hit by the call of the supporters of FC Utrecht to make his comeback as a footballer. The 36-year-old midfielder is thinking seriously about playing at the Eredivisie club.

Sneijder was asked on Thursday by a group of FC Utrecht fans to come out for their club. They visited him with a banner and fireworks, among other things. He said to them that he is “thinking about it” and that he has already spoken to FC Utrecht.

“The call from the supporters certainly touched me. I am not fit, but that makes sense if you have not done anything for a year and a half. But I do know that if the button changes, I will be fit within three months,” says Sneijder Friday in conversation with Yves Gijrath in the podcast The GYPS.

“I could theoretically go back to playing football, but this is not something you decide within 24 hours. I have to think very carefully about this. I also do other things now, so I have to do everything differently. But this triggered me. “

‘Sneijder very interesting for FC Utrecht’

Earlier on Friday, FC Utrecht confirmed to that they had already sat down with Sneijder to discuss a possible comeback as a footballer. The Domstedelingen have not given him a deadline for when to make a decision.

“We have always had good contact and a return has also been discussed. He takes the time to think whether he really wants it and whether he is convinced that he can be back in top shape. A passionate and top fit Sneijder is very interesting for FC Utrecht “, said technical director Jordy Zuidam.

As a Utrecht native, Sneijder never played for FC Utrecht. He started his career at Ajax and continued to play for Real Madrid, Internazionale, Galatasaray, OGC Nice, Al-Gharafa and the Dutch national team, where he holds the international record holder. He ended his successful career last year.
