Up­roar in Istanbul over Snei­jder exit

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Turk­ish gi­ant Galatasaray has ter­mi­nated fan fa­vorite Wes­ley Snei­jder’s con­tract, with the Dutch in­ter­na­tional seem­ingly not in Croa­t­ian coach Igor Tu­dor’s plans.

The news sparked an­gry protests on the week­end at the club’s head­quar­ters in Istanbul as fans called for the res­ig­na­tion of chair­man Dur­sun Ozbek, the state-run Anadolu news agency said.

As he left for Am­s­ter­dam, for­mer In­ter Mi­lan and Real Madrid star Snei­jder, 33, who joined Gala in 2013, said: ‘Of course I feel sad. If you have to leave like that it’s not very nice. The coach made his choices and I have to re­spect that.”
