Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic came out to defend Jose Mourinho from all his critics once again, he thinks they are envious of him.It’s no secret that Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jose Mourinho have very similar personalities and that’s the reason they always clicked, both are very passionate men who often get labeled as arrogant because of how transparent they are.Back when Ibra left Internazionale Milano to play for Barcelona, he missed out on a great opportunity to be on the right side of history when the Portuguese manager defeated the powerful Pep Guardiola Barça and he regretted his decision to leave ever since.This failure at the Catalan club brought Zlatan a lot of frustration for the bad relationship that he developed with Pep, and it also convinced him to say yes to Manchester United when Mourinho took control of the squad.Now that he is looking at the whole situation from the outside, Ibrahimovic still doesn’t hesitate to come out and defend Jose Mourinho from all his critics and he even finds a little time to take a swipe at Pep Guardiola without even mentioning the Catalan manager by name.It’s no surprise watching Zlatan talk about Mourinho in this manner, but defending him like this does no favors to the Portuguese manager because he needs a break.🗣 “It’s because of the character, because of the way he is.”Zlatan Ibrahimovic has urged Jose Mourinho to “stand up for what he is doing”, saying they are both victims of “personal” criticism. 👀📲 https://t.co/jbsROE2VoN pic.twitter.com/zFRFjA5jRt— Sky Sports Football (@SkyFootball) October 18, 2018The Swedish striker granted an interview to the folks at Sky Sports, where he talked about many topics related to football and was able to send Jose Mourinho another message of support during the most crucial week of his time at Manchester United.As we know, the Red Devils play at Stamford Bridge this weekend and they will need practically a miracle to win.“Everybody criticizes Mourinho and I don’t think it’s because of the results, it’s because of the character, because of the way he is,” said Zlatan on Sky Sports News.“I see myself also a little bit in that situation, we have our confidence, we believe in things, we say certain things. In our own way.”“Of course we get the blame, we get criticized more when it is not going good, but when it is going good and we win the satisfaction is bigger than the other ones that are political, think they’re perfect, and want to be no trouble for the media so the media never attacks them,” he added.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“That is not us, we are ourselves, we believe in what we do and we do it until the end. Some critics I feel personal, some critics are exaggerating, some because of the way he is, some because of jealousy. But all this is part of the circle.”#Zlatan backs #Mourinho – says he’s the man for the job and shouldn’t change! 😱#MUFC #ManchesterUnited pic.twitter.com/0Nsgli0lEf— VIP-bet.com (@vipbetcom) October 18, 2018Instead of telling him the best solution could be to just leave the club after so much backlash from all over the place, Zlatan did the most Zlatan thing possible and advised Mourinho to withstand pressure like a champ and things will eventually get back to normal.But we are not so certain about this because things have already escalated to a point of no return with some players. Also, see if you can find the swipe he made at Pep Guardiola.“Mourinho just has to keep being himself, stand up for what he is doing, stand up for what he is. He is there because he did it his own way, because he is who he is and don’t change for anybody,” said Zlatan.“I am exactly the same, I don’t change for anybody. Everyone out there who thinks they are perfect, they are the biggest problem out there.”“Jose is doing a good job, you’re as good as your team. There is no coach in the world who can do miracles with a team.”“Of course, results speak for themselves. The results are not on top, it goes bad, sometimes goes better, it’s part of the season.”“But the Premier League is not easy and if someone knows how to win it, it’s him. So like he said himself, more Premier League than all the league’s coaches won together.”Need @Ibra_official to do some bits and fix Mourinho and Pogba’s relationship. pic.twitter.com/W8sbgavLxC— ¹⁰⚡ (@Rashford101) October 10, 2018What do you think about Zlatan Ibrahimovic defense to Mourinho and his dig at Pep Guardiola?
