Wesley Sneijder is dusting off his boots to come out of retirement at the age of 36.
The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan star is set to begin training with amateur side DHSC on July 27
in the Netherlands.
The Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder will build up his fitness with the fifth-tier side
based in Utrecht.
He quit the professional game back in August after finishing his career with spells at Galatasaray,
Nice and Qatari outfit Al-Gharafa.
His decision to come out of retirement comes just weeks after old Netherlands national football team-mate Arjen Robben sensationally performed his career U-turn. Sneijder, capped a record 134 times by his country,
is believed to be interested in a return to top-flight football with FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie.
He has a great relationship with the club and the former playmaker is often spotted at Stadion Galgenwaard
watching home games from a box. Sneijder was born in Utrecht but never played for his hometown team,
instead of bursting onto the scene via the Ajax academy.
