Sneijder: Mourinho convinced me about Galatasaray

Galatasaray signing Wesley Sneijder admits a chat with former Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho convinced him about moving to Istanbul.

Sneijder says the Real Madrid coach advised him to sign for Gala.

"I am happy to be here," he told reporters from the Turkish Press. "Before choosing this team I spoke with [Louis] Van Gaal and Mourinho, and they advised me to accept this offer.

"I also want to thank [Inter President Massimo] Moratti - our problems were only economic, never personal.

"I leave Inter on good terms - they allowed me to win everything possible."
