Inter Milan vice-president Zanetti: Mourinho and Simoni the best

Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti has paid tribute to Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho.

Zanetti was part of Inter's Treble winning team under Mourinho.

Asked about his favourite coaches, the Argentine said, "I had many coaches, but if I have to say one, for what we did I would say (Gigi) Simoni first and then Mourinho because with the Portuguese we managed to do something extraordinary."

Mourinho worked for Inter between 2008 and 2010 before leaving for Real Madrid after winning the Treble.
