Former Inter Milan and Netherland player Wesley Sneijder have confirmed his retirements from professional football.

Sneijder will rather spend the season watching and supporting his hometown club Utrecht from the warmth of his own skybox at their stadium.

The 35-year-old said: “My desire for the city of Utrecht is exceptional,”

He continues saying: “We usually talked about the probability of me arriving here, and now we’ve inserted this thing on paper. I’m looking forward to an exceptional season!”

Sneijder made 116 appearances for Inter Milan between 2009-2013, he scored 22 goals and provided 25 assists for the Italian club.

The Dutchman won Treble of a Scudetto, Coppa Italia and the Champions League in 2010 but controversially abstained on the Ballon d’Or that year.

Sneijder also played for Galatasaray, Ajax, Real Madrid, Al-Gharafa and Nice.

He owns his country international cap record with 134 and helps the Netherlands reached the 2010 Fifa world cup final, which they lost to Spain.
