Zlatan Ibrahimovic Reveals The Only “Problem” Jose Mourinho Had With Him During Manchester United Career

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has opened up on his relationship with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

The Swede left Old Trafford for LA Galaxy last month after just over 18 months with the club.

Ibrahimovic also played under Mourinho at Inter Milan and has had a close relationship with the United boss for some time, reports the Manchester Evening News.

Praising his former boss, he said Mourinho gave him the chance to prove himself and take charge of things.

Speaking to ESPN FC, he said: “I like Mourinho. He is the Special One.

“He likes to win. Wherever he went he won. He made me feel comfortable. He gave me a lot of responsibility.

“He said to me the only problem he had with me was when could he rest me.

“They’ve been doing it good. Let’s hope, there’s one last trophy to play for, and that’s the FA Cup. So hopefully they win it.”

Ibrahimovic said last season United proved their status, winning both the EFL Cup and the Europa League, as well as the Community Shield.

“Last year we had a big success with the three trophies with a new team like that, new coach, couple of new players.

“And hopefully that rings on, because as a top team, like United, you need to keep winning, because that is the status of the club.

“You need to win. And if you’re not winning, you’re not belonging to the top.”
