Afterwards, Sneijder spoke to NOS, stating his pride at scoring the winning goal in such an important game.

He said, “If you make the winning goal in such an important match, then that gives a lot of power. It is very important to me, but more importantly for the club.”

On interest from Manchester United, the 29-year-old added, “I know nothing just as much as you, only messages from the newspapers like a ritual every time the transfer period is coming.”

“Here in Turkey it is sometimes quite annoying. The people are emotional, full of passion.I’m fine here, and enjoying myself. I’m happy here. ”

The Dutch international has found his top form again this season after a difficult spell last year, but after Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal urged him to join Chelsea, Sneijder has been constantly linked with other clubs.
