Best I ever had: Ibrahimovic hails Mourinho as ‘most intelligent’ coach in the world
Chelsea FC coach, Jose Mourinho has gotten an
impressive commendation from one of his
Paris Saint-Germain forward, Zlatan
Ibrahimovic says Mourinho is the most
intelligent coach he has ever worked with
throughout his career.
The ‘Special One’ was boss at Inter Milan,
during the 2008-09 season, when Ibrahimovic
finished as Serie A’s top goalscorer as the club
lifted the league title, but left the Italian club
for Barcelona in the next season, when
Mourinho led his team to an historic treble.
While speaking to the Guardian, he said,
“Mourinho is very intelligent. He doesn’t treat
everybody the same. He knows how to treat
people as individuals to get 100 per cent out of
them. He’s the most intelligent coach I’ve
worked with in the way he approaches players
and – ‘manipulates’ is the wrong word – gets
them very pumped up. No doubt.”
Speaking further, Ibrahimovic says he does not
regret missing out on the Champions league
trophy, despite winning 11 league titles in 13
years in Holland, Spain, Italy and France.
He said, “Let’s go back 15 years and all I saw
then has come true. Everybody who was trash-
talking me? Now they are eating their words.
This is my real trophy. I have won 23 collective
titles but the one that is missing is the
Champions League. At PSG we are trying to win
it. But even if we don’t, the 23 I have already
won, coming from where I did, are incredible.
I’ve had an amazing adventure.”
