Jose Mourinho Always Knew Zlatan Would Be The Game Changer At Manchester United
The Swede signed for United on a free transfer this season from Paris Saint-Germain and has become the Red Devils top scorer.
Ibrahimovic has been in prolific goal-scoring form and is showing no signs of slowing down.
The 35-year-old has already scored 24 goals this season in all competition for Manchester United.
Ibrahimovic arrived in England with questions surrounding his ability to perform in the Premier League so late in his career.
However, he has silenced his critics with magnificent performances – the former Barcelona man once again helped United come through with a goal from the bench in the Red Devils 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup.
“I don’t know the number of goals [Ibrahimovic has scored], I don’t know,” Jose Mourinho said after the win over Blackburn.
“I knew that he would be a very important player for us. I knew that for sure.”
“One more goal, one less goal, but I knew that the contribution would be massive for us.”
Ibrahimovic scored a 75th minute opener for Jose Mourinho’s men after teenage sensation Marcus Rashford cancelled out a Danny Graham opener for the Rovers.
The win has now set-up a blockbuster quarter-finals clash between Jose Mourinho current side Manchester United and his former team Chelsea.
