Mourinho: Ibrahimovic 'One of the Best'

MOST COMMENTED

Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho heaped praise on Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whom he managed for one season when the Portuguese was boss of Inter Milan, insisting that the big Swede was a dream to coach. Chelsea, Mourinho’s current club, will face Ibrahimovic and PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, with the first-leg at the Parc des Princes next Wednesday.

When asked what it was like to coach Ibra, the Chelsea boss said: “Easy, easy. I don’t understand when people say he is a difficult guy to work with or a difficult personality. A difficult personality [is] when you have to work with people who don’t want to win or don’t want to improve. When you have somebody who is a winner and wants to win all the time and wants to be the best and is not afraid of the big responsibilities, I think he is very, very easy. I only coached him for a year but it was a good year, a good experience and I rate him as one of the best players I have ever coached.”

Ibrahimovic, 32, is enjoying one of the best seasons of his professional career, having scored 40 goals in 40 games and adding another 16 assists.
