MILAN - Inter president Massimo Moratti revealed on Thursday evening that Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder has extended his deal with the club until 2015.
Speaking during the club's shareholders meeting, Moratti said: "Today we reached an agreement for the extension of Wesley Sneijder's contract until 2015. Sneijder was an essential player for Inter last season and it will be the same this year and for many years to come."
Sneijder is one of the candidates for the 2010 Ballon d'Or and Moratti is confident that his midfielder will carry off the prestigious award. "We all hope that he wins it, for everything he did with us and his national team at the World Cup.
"But let's not forget that Maicon, Eto'o and Julio Cesar are also among the candidates. They deserve it too, just like Milito who, absurdly, is missing from this list."
Moratti went on to talk about the club's financial situation: "The significant reduction of losses is thanks also to the efficiency of the people at the company who accompanied the team on the road to success and have worked to improve the company's economic outlook. The tendency to reduce losses must continue, in line with the indications that all clubs must follow in order to participate in UEFA competitions "
