Inter Milan and AC Milan aren’t all that fond of one another.
The two giant clubs from Italy’s capital have a glorious footballing history, but have recently fallen on harder times.
Frank de Boer was axed at Inter Milan just weeks after taking charge from Roberto Mancini, and AC Milan have slipped way off the pace set by Juventus, and aren’t even close to being the second best team in Italy.
But Wesley Sneijder still wants to play for Milan, despite being a bona fide Inter legend.
Sneijder firmly wrote himself into Inter’s history books as the creative lynchpin in the club’s Treble-winning side.
But he’s recently come out to admit that he would return to Serie A, but he would play for Inter’s bitter rivals instead.
“At Inter I gave everything, I put my heart into it, but it didn’t finish well,” said Sneijder, who is currently playing at Turkish club, Galatasaray. “I felt trampled.
“Playing for Milan was my dream when I was a child. So yes, if I went back to Italy I would want to play for Milan.
“I don’t think I will come back [to Inter]. I left after a dispute, and as I said I would like to play for Milan before finishing my career.
“I am old but I can still play. I watch matches from the Italian League and I understand that it isn’t what it was five years ago.
“There is less quality, but Milan is legendary for me.”
“I would have stayed [at Inter], at a certain point I thought ‘stay here and wait.’
“But then I wanted to play, a player cannot be out for so many months. I would have lost my place in the national team, I would have lost what I love most – being on the pitch.”
