Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho's love for Chelsea comes second only to his wife and kids according to Wesley Sneijder.

"Jose Mourinho only loves his wife & kids more than Chelsea, he has a special place in his heart for the club," Sneijder said speaking to SporX.

"He has never made any secret about wanting to coach in England again — and when you hear him talk about Chelsea I don’t think he could coach any other team there.

“Mourinho has the excited look of a kid telling his parents what he wants for Christmas when he talks about the Premier League and Chelsea.”

Mourinho signed Sneijder from Real Madrid in 2009 during his time managing Internazionale.

The Portuguese manager transformed Sneijder from a player who had not quite lived up to his potential at Real Madrid to one of the most highly rated players in world football.

Sneijder and Mourinho helped secure a historic treble winning season for Inter - winning the Serie A, Copa Italia and Champions League titles.

Sneijder joined Galatasaray from Inter Milan for €7.5 million in January.
