José Mourinho was in Kayseri on Sunday night to cast his eye over Real Madrid's Champions League quarter-final opponents Galatasaray, and found time to offer Wesley Sneijder a wave from the stands during the game.

Having overseen Real Madrid's 4-2 victory against Real Mallorca on Saturday evening, Mourinho began the international break with a trip to see a couple of his former pupils in action.

Within three minutes, Sneijder had opened the scoring for Gala in their 3-1 win at Kayserispor, with another of Mourinho's ex-players, Didier Drogba, also starting but not getting on the scoresheet for the Turkish champions.

Sneijder suggested his former coach was a lucky charm.

"When he's around I score, so it was nice to meet up with him again," the Dutchman said. "The last time was after the Champions League win."

Sneijder peaked under Mourinho's stewardship in Internazionale's 2009-10 Treble-winning season, when the 28-year-old formed one-third of a terrific triumvirate with Samuel Eto'o and Diego milito, as the trio brought Inter a first European Cup since 1965.

Galatasaray are four points ahead of Istanbul adversaries Fenerbahçe in the Turkish Super Lig.
