Netherlands national team manager Louis van Gaal did not want Wesley Sneijder to stay at Galatasaray, per ESPN. Van Gaal said, "In my opinion, if possible Sneijder should leave Galatasaray and join Chelsea. Playing under Mourinho again would improve his performances and help him regain his form for the national team."
What is so bad about Galatasaray?
Well, 34 clubs in Europe, including Basel, Sporting Lisbon and Olympiacos, have a higher UEFA coefficient ranking than Galatasaray, per UEFA.com.
The Turkish Super Lig has the 11th highest UEFA coefficient ranking, with leagues in Belgium, Ukraine and the Netherlands all outranking Turkey, per UEFA.com.
Sneijder is a world-class player who should be playing in a stronger competition.
