Ex-Real Madrid midfielder Sneijder: I could've matched Messi, Ronaldo

Former Inter Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Wesley Sneijder says he failed to fulfill his potential during his career.

Sneijder admits if he had lived better off the pitch he could've done more in the game.

He told FOX Sports: "I have to be honest with myself and that is what I am: if I had lived 100%, I would have been on that list - with Messi and Cristiano.

"I know this...

“And I don't regret it either. Not that I couldn't mention it: I just didn't want it. I enjoyed my career in both areas. I enjoyed football outside, I enjoyed the field. I won all the prizes you could win, so I don't regret it for a second."
