Former Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels Jose Mourinho has the credentials to win another Premier League title but may not happen with the calibre of players at Old Trafford. The Portuguese tactician has come under fire from the supporters following an average start to the campaign and this has increased speculation of him parting ways with the club in the near future.

Speaking to BetHard, Zlatan was supportive of his former manager with whom he has worked at both Inter Milan and United, and believes he can turn the situation around, should the players progress alongside him, he said: “I think he has the ability to win [the Premier League]. I think he is the right coach for that club, for that team. But a coach is only as good as his team, so it’s not like he can do miracles if the team is not good enough. And I feel the team is good – it’s progressing, becoming better. This is his third year, the players know more and more the way he wants to play and how he wants it – so I believe, yes.”

Mourinho had recently witnessed his team go through a four-match winless run across all competitions and they made the worst possible start last weekend after Newcastle United secured a 2-0 lead within the opening 10 minutes. Nonetheless, United eventually managed to overturn the result with an epic comeback during the second half and this has offered Mourinho with some leverage for the forthcoming matches.

Still, the hierarchy’s support may not last forever and the club’s failure to cement a long-winning run may witness the Portuguese’s job come under fire before the conclusion of the campaign. United are currently only eighth on the Premier League table after bagging just four victories from their opening eight matches. They are presently trailing league leaders Manchester City by a seven-point margin.
