Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder has slated former club Real Madrid. Sneijder maintains a grudge against his former Real bosses Florentino Perez and Jorge Valdano.

The Dutchman said: "I would never return to Real Madrid. What happened there was akin to a 'mafia hit.' I could easily do what Xabi Alonso is doing now and many people believe that.

"It doesn't mean I hate Real. After all, I keep in touch with many of my former teammates, but at the same time I am happy that I've been able to prove myself elsewhere."
