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."
