Sneijder Salary & Net Worth

How much did Wesley Sneijder earn?

Wesley Sneijder has a net worth of...

35 Million Euros (41.4 Million Dollars)

His career was on the right path, and at one time, he was touted as Holland's brightest and biggest stars ever. He did have the quality to back up that claim. However, his move to Real Madrid and a quick departure meant that it regressed at a rate that he wouldn't have liked. Blighted by injuries, his talent was not fully displayed. His net worth indicates the money that he made from football via wages and a few sponsorships along the way. It could have been a lot more had he not succumbed to his habits. It's about 35 million Euros according to our estimates.

Current Job

What does Sneijder currently do?

Wes has retired and has reportedly struck a deal with FC Utrecht. We're not entirely clear what it entails, but he gets to enjoy watching them play from a private box. Some reports even suggest that he's considering returning to football, but he's taking it easy for now. (Image: imgur.com)

Iconic Moments

Old Habits Die Hard

His addiction to alcohol and wanting to have a good time led to his downfall. There are no two ways about it. The man, by his own admission, was on Vodka all the time whilst he was in Madrid. It was like he was completely ignorant of the expectations of a club like Real. (Image: imgur.com)

Ruined Career

It could have been so much better had he not followed his desires. Inter Milan was the only saving grace after the Spanish capital. That too was a downgrade, in our opinion. He's only 36 but is already retired from the sport. It's sad to see a man squander his chance like this. (Image: imgur.com)

Cheater in the House

Here he's having a genuine moment of happiness on the pitch with his boss Jose. He was quite the player on it. Off it, he hasn't been so straightforward. His indiscretion against his wife did make the news. He was pictured kissing Yolanthe while still being married. He got involved with her, broke off his marriage. The affair came to light after the picture of him kissing the Dutch TV presenter got leaked. It is quite hard for us to make a comment on the issue, considering how he has not had any other controversies before or since the incident. (Image: imgur.com)

Who Ate All The Pies?

He made a shock appearance two weeks after retiring from football, visibly overweight. He had gained a significant amount of mass. He puts Christian Bale's body transformation for Batman to shame. (Image: imgur.com)

Piling on the Pounds

The man is considerably short in stature and has always appeared to be stocky. But to let go as he did makes us wonder if he was stress eating. Retiring at such a young age must have weighed in (no pun intended) on his gorging. He appears to have lost some of it now and is looking healthier. We wouldn't be too happy to see him waste the rest of his life away. (Image: imgur.com)

We can see why he cheated on his first wife with Yolanthe. Anyone would be tempted to. (Image: imgur.com)

Sadly, this story looks like it isn't going to have a happy ending. The couple has decided to take some time off from each other. (Image: imgur.com)

Rodney plays football but didn't find the success that Wes did. At 27, it's unlikely that he will. (Image: imgur.com)


Sneijder Car - What does he drive?

The Range Rover is one of his decisions in life that we don't have any reservations about. (Image: imgur.com)
