The younger brother of former Champions League winner and World Cup runner-up Wesley Sneijder, Rodney started his career at Ajax, where he had been a youth player since the age of eight. While at Ajax, he was capped at Under 17 and Under 19 for his native Netherlands. He later moved to Utrecht on loan in 2011, before leaving the Amsterdam club for RKC Waalwijk, where he spent two seasons. At age 21, he left for Eerste Divisie side Almere City.

After one season with Almere City, Rodney joined United on trial during the Club's pre-season tour of Holland, playing as a trialist during their 3-1 defeat to AZ Alkmaar. At the end of the tour, United announced that Rodney had signed a two year deal.

After making just one competitive appearance as a substitute, Rodney fell ill, and in the interest of "protecting the player's health", the midfielder's contract was terminated on August 25th and he returned home.
