Ibrahimovic had a close relationship with Mourinho during their time together at United.
He told the Mirror: "What he has done, you can never erase that. He has a CV where he won wherever he went.
“And you want to win. If, for example, I did not win, you could say… Ibrahimovic was a good player but what did he win?
“When I came to United, I did not come for a vacation. I didn't come to admire the sign of Manchester United. I came to win."
