A visibly moved Jose Mourinho fought hard to 'hold back the tears' when Wesley Sneijder paid tribute to him in an emotionally-charged speech.

Sneijder also played a vital role on the international stage as the Netherlands reached the final of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

However, the former Netherlands international saw his dreams crushed as Andres Iniesta scored the winner in extra-time for Spain.

Sneijder managed to secure his place in the 2010 FIFA FIFPro World XI alongside Barcelona legends Xavi and Iniesta.

And the ex-Inter maestro dedicated the end of his speech to Mourinho as he said it was a "pleasure to work with him" and hailed him the "best coach in the world."

Sneijder was widely tipped as one of the favourites to land the 2010 Ballon d'Or after Inter's 2009-10 season.
