“I feel a great deal of responsibility on my shoulders and the Coach also puts his faith in me. I like that,” said Ibra on Sky Italia.

“I have to give many answers to my teammates and the fans, but I do not feel like a leader, because we have a captain and he needs to be the leader.”

On new coach Jose Mourinho, Ibrahimovic added: “Jose Mourinho has given me a lot of freedom on the field, which is what I need to play with my characteristics.

“He knows what he has to do to get the best out of his players. This is why I have said Mourinho is the most complete Coach I have ever worked with.

“We need to continue the way we have until now, hopefully winning some trophies along the way. The Champions League is a tough ask, but with The Special One anything can happen.”
