Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and believes the striker is misunderstood.
Manchester United recruit Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a "funny guy," according to manager Jose Mourinho.
Ibrahimovic, 34, has reunited with Mourinho after signing a one-year deal with the Premier League giants. The Swedish striker is often labeled as arrogant, but his manager believes the former Paris Saint-Germain, Inter and Barcelona star is misunderstood.
Mourinho had nothing but kind words to describe his signing, telling Adidas Front Row: "Three words — he's a winner, he's a goal scorer, he's funny.
"He's a funny guy. You need to understand him to use this word to describe him. He's a funny guy. If you don't know him maybe you think some quotes a bit arrogant. He's just a funny guy. I would say that. Funny, winner and goal scorer. I was so happy to go for him and obviously he's happy to work with me."
Mourinho and Ibrahimovic spent a season together at Inter in 2008-09, winning the Serie A title.
