Zlatan Ibrahimovic thinks Jose Mourinho “has the ability” to win the Premier League at Manchester United.
Mourinho has been coming under increasing pressure this season over results, press conferences, playing style and a high-profile fall-out with Paul Pogba, among other things.
And it could have got worse on Saturday as United found themselves 2-0 down at home to Newcastle before three goals in the last 20 minutes turn the match in Mourinho’s favour.
Despite that, there is still a feeling of discontent at Old Trafford but former Red Devils striker Ibrahimovic thinks Mourinho is still the man.
“I think he has the ability to win [the Premier League]” said the Swede, speaking to BetHard. “I think he is the right coach for that club, for that team.
“But a coach is only as good as his team, so it’s not like he can do miracles if the team is not good enough.
“And I feel the team is good – it’s progressing, becoming better. This is his third year, the players know more and more the way he wants to play and how he wants it – so I believe, yes.”
