Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti has paid tribute to Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

Inter and Zanetti won a historic Treble under Mourinho.

"He's a great. Why is he special? Simply, he is ahead of everyone else. He's a coach who is very well prepared, studies the game like few other coaches and always wins.

"Before the final in Madrid he told us that we had come this far and we just needed to write one more line to finish this big story for Inter.

"He will always be part of the great family of Inter."
