Wesley Sneijder looks back on his debut for OGC Nice. The record international of Orange says, there is still time to need to perform better.

With Sneijder 85 minutes between the lines posted Nice Saturday night his first victory of the season. Guingamp with 2-0 records.

“I feel good, especially thanks to the victory. Then you feel always good,” said Sneijder against Canal+.

“I know that it could be even better. It was only my first contest, so I need my opponents to know better. That is now the most important thing,” said the 33-year-old midfielder.

Sneijder signed earlier this month press conference at Nice, after his contract with Galatasaray was terminated. The midfielder had a trainingsachterstand.

Napoli

At his presentation in Nice for more than a week ago said Sneijder to focus on the match of Tuesday against Napoli in the play-offs for the Champions League. Trainer Lucien Favre took the 131-fold international of Orange Saturday already fit enough for a nearly full match.

“In the second half I played better than in the first half, but I still need time,” said Sneijder. “I’m happy with my first match and the home win. Now we have the next game focus.”

On Tuesday, Nice is still a small chance to qualify for the Champions League. The 2-0 defeat in the heenwedstrijd be undone.

Nice was previously in the preliminary round of the Champions League too strong for Ajax (1-1 and 2-2). The number three of last year in Ligue 1, losing his first two matches played this season.
