Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder has said that he wants to forget the current season because he believes that next year will be great for him. The 28-year-old recently made the switch from Italian club Inter Milan to the Turkish club Galatasaray. Many wondered about the ambition of the former Real Madrid star, but he proved that it was the right decision by managing to make it into the quarter-finals of the Champions league. He almost helped Galatasaray beat his former club in a close run match. It was not long ago that Sneijder was extremely crucial in the treble for Inter Milan.
However, injuries and poor form have meant that the 28-year-old has not been of the best midfielders in the world in recent times, but he believes that he can get back to his best next season. Sneijder managed to celebrate his first Turkish league title after Galatasaray secured it following a 4-2 win over Sivasspor. Sneijder has said that he has been successful when it comes to league titles in Spain, Italy, and Holland. The success in Turkey now means that he has won league titles in four different countries. Sneijder was a € 8 million signing from Inter Milan. He has already scored three goals for the club in just 11 matches.
“I have won the league in the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and am proud to have now also lifted the title in Turkey. I believe next season is going to be my year and I can’t wait to play Champions League football again. The quality of the Turkish league is very high, it’s no coincidence that Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe have successful in Europe this season,” said the 28-year-old in a press conference. “Champions!!!!!! Thanks to all the fans, you guys were amazing again! Like always,” said Sneijder on his Twitter account.

Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal has praised his team after the 4-0 win over Romania by saying that it was the best ever display by his team. Netherlands came into the match against Romania knowing that they could put 1 foot in the FIFA World Cup 2014 finals. The team are currently top of the group D by a massive difference. They just extended it following the win over Romania. Striker Robin van Persie returned to form after scoring two goals. Van Gaal praised the Manchester United player by saying that he is proving to be a real difference in recent years.
After struggling with several injury problems during the early part of his career, van Persie has been one of the consistent players over the last few years for both club and country. Jermain Lens and the former Tottenham midfielder – Rafael van der Vaart – scored the goals for Netherlands in this impressive victory. Van der Vaart opened the scoring after just 12 min on the clock. It looked like another rout was on the cards for Netherlands. However, Romania defended valiantly and went into the half-time break with just the one goal deficit.
The second half was totally different after Robin van Persie scored two goals, while Lens’ late penalty helped put a smile on the manager’s face. “Van Persie was very unlucky in the first half but in the second half he was actually very happy, because he made an incredible world-class goal. He was also a great target man, as you saw in his first goal. And Van der Vaart put his shot in flawlessly. Lens was [also] involved in two goals. And I haven’t even talked about the defensive organisation. I thought it was the best match [the team has played] in this period under me,” said Louis van Gaal.
