Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reiterated that it was the chance to play under ‘masterbrain’ Jose Mourinho that finally pulled him to the Premier League.
The Swede has previously turned down the chance to join first Arsenal and then Manchester City but he could not turn down Manchester United under Mourinho.
“I was close two times to moving to the Premier League – once with Arsenal and then Manchester City,” he said. “But it never happened and I don’t need to play in the Premier League.
“He is the mastermind, the masterbrain.
“He knows what he needs to do to win. I learned a lot from him at Inter. Who wouldn’t want to have Mourinho as manager.”
