Manchester United Is Enjoying Ibrahimovic Amazing Form Says Jose Mourinho

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's amazing form at Manchester United has come as no surprise to manager Jose Mourinho. Mourinho this week described the former Sweden international as phenomenal and almost undroppable and he proved his worth again on Saturday evening with both goals in United's 2-0 win at West Brom.

An unerring knack of finding the net and a medal-laden CV led to much excitement around Old Trafford when the 35years old eventually signed in the summer on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain. However, few expected Ibrahimovic to have such an influence, given his advancing years and the punishing fixture schedule in England. However, the Swede's double at The Hawthorns took his tally for the campaign to 16 goals.

Mourinho said “Yes. I was expecting that because I knew the reasons why he was coming. He was not coming for the wrong reasons. He was not coming for the money, he was not coming for the prestige. He was coming to enjoy his football and play for one of the best teams in the world. He is playing amazingly well but even in the period he was not scoring goals he was important for us. We bought him for more than just to score goals. In the last two matches he scores three goals and we get six points in two away matches.”

Ibrahimovic has featured in 25 of United's 27 matches this season and shown few ill-effects and Mourinho admitted he was not planning on using him quite as much. The manager continued: “No, I didn't expect it. I was expecting in the Europa League to give him a different situation but we put ourselves in a difficult situation losing the first match at Feyenoord and then every match became important, including the last one. We communicate and exchange ideas about his situation, his feelings and up to now he is feeling great. I am very lucky as he is not just a normal player. He is not a player who plays in a position where he can hide a little bit. He plays with experience. Amazing central defenders can play until they are they are really old but a striker you cannot hide - and he is doing really well.”
