Ibrahimovic: I could've joined LVG's Man Utd, but...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he could've joined Manchester United a year ago - but didn't fancy it.

Ibra has thrown his backing behind Jose Mourinho by insisting he was the reason he came to Old Trafford instead of a year ago when Louis van Gaal was in charge.

He told The Sun: “There were talks about me coming to United one year ago, that is correct. But it was not the right moment.

“But then they get the Special One and when the Special One calls, and when he starts to talk to you, you are already convinced.

“He didn't need to talk a lot to convince. I know him from before, what he wants, what his demands are, what he goes for. He is a winner. I see myself as a winner also.

“We won when we were young and we will win when we are a little bit older. Not old. Just a little bit older."
