Sneijder: 'Mourinho deserves award'

Inter midfield playmaker Wesley Sneijder feels Jose Mourinho deserves to be recognised as the best tactician in the world.

The Special One was awarded the coaching version of the FIFA Ballon d'Or last night at a ceremony in Zurich, paying tribute to the treble he won at Inter last season.

Interviewed on Sky Italia, Sneijder was asked to compare Mourinho with Inter's current boss Leonardo.

"I think that the two are rather similar," he said. "We'll see Leo's qualities in the future, but one thing is for certain: they have the same way of thinking.

"This is a great thing for our group of players. We have already won two games under Leonardo and must continue playing this way.

"However, Mourinho is without doubt the best Coach in the world."
