Wesley Sneijder sits with noisy Inter Milan ultras for Champions League semi win

Amongst the Inter Milan fans cheering them on to the Champions League final was former midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

The Dutchman, who spent three-and-a-half seasons with Inter and won Europe's top prize under Jose Mourinho, returned to the San Siro on Tuesday (May 16) night. He joined the club's ultras in the Curva Nord, with the fans chanting his name.

Also alongside him was his old centre-back team-mate Marco Materazzi, who was 10 years a Inter play from 2001-2011. The pair witnessed Inter beat their arch rivals Milan 1-0 on the night to secure a 3-0 aggregate victory.

"I had a similar experience at the World Cup: if you are united, you get to play these very important matches in the best possible way.

“Every time I take the pitch I try to give my best in order to help my team-mates. We knew we had this opportunity to reach the Champions League final and today we completed our job.”

Sneijder, meanwhile, took to Instagram to upload a video on his Instagram story of fans mobbing him outside the ground pre-match.

Inter will now face the winner of Manchester City and Real Madrid, who face each other on Wednesday with the tie 1-1 at the halfway stage, in next month's final in Istanbul.
