New Man United signing gives his take on Jose Mourinho
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is settling in well to life at Manchester United
Zlatan Ibrahimovic says that he has enjoyed his first taste of life at Manchester United under new manager Jose Mourinho.
The 34-year-old became the club’s second signing of the summer transfer window as he joined the Red Devils on a free transfer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season.
Ibrahimovic linked up with his new team-mates for the first time last week as he got used to life at Carrington and took part in his first training sessions with Mourinho’s men.
And the striker – who previously played under Mourinho during his spell at Inter Milan – is enjoying his start to his United career following his transfer.
Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Ibrahimovic said: “Positive vibes. They seem to be good guys, quality players, they train very hard and, during the training, are very focused.
“The coach – he is direct, he is concrete, he says what he wants and the players are adapting. So there are only positive things.”
He continued: “I believe in working hard. Not only in games but even in training.
“The way you train is the way you play in the games – that’s my philosophy. Working hard, training hard and feeling good. Then you need to get the rhythm by playing games.”
United finished fifth in the Premier League and won the FA Cup last season before Louis van Gaal was sacked and replaced by Mourinho at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since their triumph in 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge at the club.
