Holland star Wesley Sneijder has trolled Liverpool after revealing he turned down a move to Anfield because he is “a winner”.
A host of high-profile clubs were chasing the energetic midfielder in 2013 whe he decided he was leaving Inter Milan.
Both Manchester United and Liverpool were believed to be tracking the 33-year-old back then, but Sneijder opted to sign for Turkish outfit Galatasaray.
He went on to win the Turkish Super Lig twice and ended up with eight trophies in a four-year spell, before leaving on a free transfer for Nice.
“Many clubs wanted to know when I was leaving Inter, and Liverpool was one of those clubs, so people were surprised I chose Galatasaray,” said Sneijder, who is now with Qatari outfit Al-Gharafa.
“Why Galatasaray and not Liverpool? I am a winner.
“I play for prizes, so I went to Galatasaray because I thought that I would win more at Galatasaray and be a champion more than at Liverpool, and I think afterwards that I made the right choice.
“I had nice years in Turkey.”
