Wesley Sneijder aiming to win silverware after joining Nice

Wesley Sneijder says he joined Nice to win titles, adding that it was an easy decision to join the club.

Former Ajax, Real Madrid and Inter Milan midfielder Sneijder, 33, completed his move to Nice after passing a medical on Monday.

"I always found new challenges in my career," Sneijder said during his presentation on Tuesday. "I still want to win titles and I came in Nice for that.

"I am very proud. The reception has been great. I'm here to help. I had a good feeling in training. Nice is a very beautiful city, but I came only for the sport.

"I came to Ligue 1 for the team and the style of play the team wants to play. It was an easy decision."

Sneijder, who is the most-capped player in Netherlands history having appeared 131 times, was without a club following his release from Galatasaray last month.

He left Gala after four years, ending his contract early by mutual consent and said he made his decision to sign after speaking with head coach Lucien Favre and that he feels he is getting sharper with age.

He added: "I know Mario [Balotelli] but to make my choice I talked with the coach, players and management. Here, there is talent and a great state of mind. That's what attracted me to Nice.

"The older I get, the better I feel."

He trained with his new teammates on Monday and will wear the No. 10 shirt at the Allianz Riviera.

"I have long played No. 10. The coach knows my qualities, and I play everywhere where he asks me in the middle," Sneijder said.

Meanwhile, Nice have also announced the signing of France under-20 international Allan Saint-Maximin from Monaco.
