AC Milan legend Ruud Gullit has paid tribute to Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder. Sneijder, who came close to joining Manchester United over the summer, is regarded as the best of a generation by the former Chelsea manager.

"My generation was stronger physically, but this does not mean that they are not as good, just different," said Gullit.

"The player guiding them is definitely Wesley Sneijder, technically the best but also a leader on the field, the best Dutch player of today."
