Ibrahimovic joined LA Galaxy shortly after United's Champions League exit, and managed to score two impressive goals on his debut.
In a recent interview, he spoke to ESPN FC about his admiration for United's manager.
"I like Mourinho. He is the Special One," he said.
"He likes to win. Wherever he went he won.
"He made me feel comfortable. He gave me a lot of responsibility.
"He said to me the only problem he had with me was when could he rest me."
