Ibrahimovic has hailed Jose Mourinho as ”the most complete coach’
Internazionale striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hailed Jose Mourinho as ”the most complete coach” he has played under and believes the former Chelsea and Porto coach has already had a huge impact on his career.
Peas in a pod: Ibramhimovich and Mourinho.
Often inconsistent and temperamental Sweden international told the club’s official website: ”In only two or three months with him I have learned a lot, perhaps more than what I have learned in the last five years at the same level.”
”[Moruinho] is most certainly the most complete coach that I have ever had. I think he can help me improve a lot.”
Reading between the lines of Ibrahimovic’s comments is seems the striker holds littlel lasting respect for Mourinho’s predecessors in the Nerazzurri hot-seat, Fabio Capello and Roberto Mancini.
Mourinho joined the Italian champions this summer replacing Mancini, who guided Inter to three successive league titles before being dismissed.
The self-styled ‘Special One’ has already achieved success at Inter with his team winning the Italian Supercoppa in August, and after six games Inter are joint Serie A leaders alongside Lazio and Udinese and remain unbeaten in the Champions League.
However it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for Mourinho who is enduring a torrid time with the Italian media after several run-ins over his tendency to send his assistant to press conference and ducking the chance to be interviewed at the same time as Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri live on television.
