Sneijder wants Robben at Inter Milan

Arjen Robben has been urged to leave Bayern Munich by his Netherlands team-mates after being booed by Bavarian fans at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday, with Wesley Sneijder stating he would love the winger to join him at Inter Miilan.

Robben, 28, was jeered whenever he touched the ball during a friendly between Netherlands and Bayern, with supporters of Jupp Heynckes' side still upset about the Dutchman's missed penalty in the Champions League final defeat to Chelsea.

The Bayern fans' behaviour brought widespread condemnation from Oranje players after the game, with Robben's team-mates and manager advising him to quit the German giants.

And Sneijder, who has played with Robben at club and international level, believes he would be welcomed with open arms at Inter.

"The reaction from the fans was scandalous,'' Sneijder said. "Not only that, but over the last few days no-one at Bayern has defended him. By doing that, they're shutting him out.

"Arjen has had a very disappointing evening. If it was my decision, he'll come to Inter this summer."

Robben only recently signed a new contract with Bayern, but Netherlands captain Mark van Bommel - who played for the Bavarians for five years before leaving in 2011 - believes he would be better off quitting the Allianz Arena.

"It's absolutely outrageous how the fans treated Arjen Robben,'' Van Bommel said. "You only have to look at what he has accomplished there. He scored a penalty against Real Madrid in the (Champions League) semi-finals.

"People seem to have forgotten that. They should be pleased to have such a player. A large part of the German crowd booed their own player. That cannot happen.

"If I was Arjen, I would start thinking about whether I still want to play football there, even if my contract has just been renewed. Arjen is very strong mentally, and comes back stronger each time after every setback. I don't know what Arjen is going to do but this is a disgrace.''

Oranje boss Bert van Marwijk also launched a staunch defence of his player, saying: "It is a disgrace the way they treated Arjen. I can understand when a player considers whether he should leave or not in such a situation. That is not funny anymore, that is serious.''
