Speaking with Gianlucadimarzio.com, Sneijder says he has no career regrets.
"I could have become like (Lionel) Messi or (Cristiano) Ronaldo. I simply didn't feel like it," said Sneijder.
"As a footballer, I enjoyed my life, maybe I had a glass for dinner. Leo and Cristiano are different, they have made many sacrifices.
"And that's fine with me: my career, despite this, was still amazing."
