Mourinho reveals reason behind Man Utd summer striker pursuit

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have been delighted with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s performances this season…

The Swedish forward has settled in seamlessly at Old Trafford this season, having scored 15 goals for the Red Devils so far. Indeed, question marks have often been raised about whether he could do in the Premier League – but those doubts have firmly been silenced now.

It appears as though Mourinho’s desire to bring Zlatan to the Premier League wasn’t just for his goal tally, though, as he has revealed to France Football.

Discussing the team that he inherited, Mourinho said: “Manchester United no longer has the super personalities…[like] Giggs, Scholes or Roy Keane”.

He continued: “That’s why it was important for me to get Zlatan. In this team, he had, without being English and without knowing the culture of the club, the personality and the profile”.

Essentially, what Mourinho is saying is that Zlatan brings a sense of seniority and leadership to the Man Utd dressing room, and whilst his team mates are hugely talented – that leadership is not something that can be learnt.

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping Ibrahimovic will secure another deal at Old Trafford this summer.
