Sneijder: I would kill, die for Real Madrid coach Mourinho

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder says he was willing to "kill" for Jose Mourinho last season.

Sneijder has paid a glowing tribute to the Real Madrid coach.

He said: "Once he said to me: 'Wesley you look tired. Take a few days off. Go get some sun with your wife and child'.

"All the other Coaches [in my career] only spoke about training. He sent me to the beach. So I went to Ibiza for three days.

"When I got back, I was prepared to kill and die for him."
