Sneijder eager to see Hiddink at Inter

Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder believes countryman Guus Hiddink would be the ideal successor to Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.

Speaking to Corriere dello Sport the ‘Utrecht Sniper’ praised both managers, saying: “They both have big motivational skills. But the most important thing is the way they take care of the tactical aspect, instilling lots of courage in their players.”

Mourinho seems certain to leave the Serie A champions to take over at Real Madrid after two years in charge, winning the treble this term.

Hiddink is set to coach of the Turkey national team from August 1, and along with England boss Fabio Capello is near the top of Inter’s wish-list.

Sneijder, who joined the Nerazzurri last summer, is a significant admirer of the former Real Madrid, PSV and Chelsea coach.

“Hiddink has a wealth of experience,” he said.

“He learned that at Real Madrid and Chelsea, and we must not forget that he is the man who won everything at PSV Eindhoven in 1988.

“He would do very well at Inter.”
