What PSG ace Ibrahimovic said about Mourinho - and Guardiola

PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is full of praise for Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho. Ibra writes about Mourinho in his new book, 'I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic'.

"Jose Mourinho is a big star. He'd been my manager at Inter. He's nice. The first time he met my partner Helena, he whispered to her: 'Helena, you have only one mission: feed Zlatan, let him sleep, keep him happy.' That guy says whatever he wants. I like him. He's the leader of his army. But he cares, too. He would text me all the time at Inter, wondering how I was doing. He's the exact opposite of Pep Guardiola.

"If Mourinho lights up a room, Guardiola draws the curtains. I guessed that Guardiola was trying to match up to him.

"Mourinho would become a guy I was basically willing to die for."
