Wesley Sneijder refused to be Jose Mourinho

Wesley Sneijder refused to give Jose Mourinho information about Galatasaray according to Sporx.

"Mourinho called me two minutes after the draw," Sneijder said.

"He wanted to know about the team, the players, the tactics.

"I know Mourinho and his methods so didn't give him any information, he couldn't trick me I knew what he was after.

"I know what can and can't be said, Mourinho will found out what kind of team we are on the field."

Galatasaray face Chelsea in the round of 16, with the first leg due to be played at the Türk Telecom Arena on February 26.

The match will see Sneijder reunited with his former boss Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese manager signed Sneijder from Real Madrid in 2009 during his time managing Internazionale.

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

The 29-year-old playmaker joined Galatasaray from Inter Milan in January and has 10 goals and two assists in 25 appearances for the Lions this season.
