Wesley Sneijder reveals shocking thing Mourinho did 2 weeks to UCL final
Former Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has described Jose Mourinho as a very intelligent manager.
He said this while telling an incredible story of how the Portuguese predicted the 2010 UEFA Champions League scoreline two weeks in advance.
Sneijder was one of Mourinho’s key men at Inter Milan and was part of the side that beat Bayern Munich 2-0 in the Champions League final.
Diego Milito scored twice for the Nerazzurri as they also claimed a continental treble.
Sneijder, a former Netherlands international, revealed how the former Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Manchester United boss handed defender Marco Materazzi a letter but instructed him not to open it until after the final.
Sneijder told SportBible, “He called Materazzi in his office, like two weeks before the game. And he wrote something on the paper, put it in an envelope, and gave it to him. And he said, Like, open it after the game in the dressing room after the final. So that’s what he did.”
“The score was there—2-0. He is so intelligent because he knew exactly what to do in this game.
“Obviously, you need to be lucky as well to put it 2-0 for me; it’s not a surprise because he knew everything.”
