The Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic promises and gives hope to the fans, the hope they had lost for the past three years. The Swedish is well known for his confidence in the pitch and he gives the same out put of scoring goals and he says he is a “Lion” when he is on the pitch playing football.
The Red Devils striker promised the fans that this year their not aiming for the fourth place but for the title. Manchester United haven’t won the League since 2013 after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, but the Swedish said this season Manchester United is going to end the drought under Jose Mourinho.
“A relationship between a player and a coach has to be between a player and a coach,” Ibrahimovic told Football Focus. “I know this coach from before, I know what he wants, what he demands, I know what he goes for, he is a winner. I see myself as a winner also, I like to win, I will do everything to do win.”
“He thinks the same thing, and he won, and I won. We won when we were young, and we will win when we are a little bit older. And not old. A little bit older.”
Ibrahimovic also appeared to take a swipe at City manager Pep Guardiola. The pair worked together for a season at Barcelona, where they spoke ‘twice in six months’ and Ibrahimovic appeared to accuse the Catalan of not being direct with him.
“In a short time he [Mourinho] is very successful,” he added. “And not every coach has that because you have coaches that build up and the clubs have a lot of patience with them but this coach makes in a short time big success and he’s direct with everyone.
“He’s not a coach that goes behind you and will go behind your back, he will tell you. If you’re not good enough, you’re not good enough, and I prefer it is like that instead of having somebody that doesn’t say anything to you.”
