Inter Milan's Sneijder: Mourinho warned Italy's Juventus players would target me

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has revealed how coach Jose Mourinho warned him about facing Italy last night over fears he would be hammered by their Juventus players!

In the end, Sneijder missed Holland's 0-0 draw due to injury, but admitted: "Mourinho told me that the many Juventus players in the Italian team would hunt me all over the field to hit me with violent tackles and therefore, I should play with caution.

"I do not care about these things, but anyway I will heed his advice to be more careful during the match. The Portuguese coach is really one of us and is always at the centre of the squad and on an airplane sitting in our midst.

"Between us there is nothing very complicated."
