José Mourinho has revealed that he is not surprised with the impact striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had on the team.
He is only two behind top scorer Diego Costa. Mourinho says that Ibrahimovic came to the club not to just pick up a lot of wages and stuff here and there. As a manager who has previously worked with the Swede, Mourinho says that Ibrahimovic is one of the immensely hungry players out there and he always likes to get his 110% to the teams he represents.
Since moving to Old Trafford in the summer, Ibrahimovic has managed 16 goals in all competitions. As a result, there has been talk of Ibrahimovic extending his stay at the club beyond the summer.
“He is important to us for many more reasons than the goals but in the last two matches he has scored three goals and got us six points in two away matches which is very important.I was expecting him to have the impact he has had this season because I knew the reasons he was coming here. He was not coming for the money or the prestige, he was just coming to enjoy his football and to play in the best league in the world,” said Mourinho.
