Chivu Accepts Sneijder Exit

Inter Milan defender Cristian Chivu says he bears no ill feelings towards Wesley Sneijder following the midfielder's move to Turkey.

The Dutchman departed the San Siro in acrimonious circumstances after rejecting a new deal on a reduced salary.
 
“It is a touchy subject,” Chivu told Inter Channel. “Some players have been offered a contract worth a certain amount of money.
 
“So it's difficult to go back to them in the same period and reduce that amount.
 
“I do not judge anyone in that situation because different people react in different ways.
 
“I personally feel at home at Inter – I believe in this project. I feel the affection of this club, so I will stay.”
 
Chivu then went on to praise his coach Andrea Stramaccioni.
 
“I am very happy with Stramaccioni. He may be young. But he is very well prepared," he continued.
 
“He gets along with everyone because he talks to all of us – there is a lot of communication, and we try to help him with our experience.
 
“I believe that considering the changes that have been made at the club, we have done well this season.
 
“It has been a difficult period – a time for reconstruction. But we have the ability to fight on all fronts.”
