Often throughout their careers both Ibrahimovic and Mourinho have been labelled 'arrogant'.
But Ibrahimovic says that such labels simply come down to ignorance.
"He was confident, not arrogant, because people say 'arrogance', I have the same thing, people say I'm arrogant, but I don't call it arrogant, I call it confident," insisted Ibrahimovic, speaking to BetHard.
"Because when you are confident, it means you are not powerful, but you are pretty sure for who you are.
"That is not arrogance, it is different. Ignorant call it arrogant, the intelligent call it confident."
