Mourinho rules out Zlatan return

A few weeks ago, ESPN had reported a rumour gong around the football circles in Manchester that United manager Jose Mourinho intended to bring Zlatan Ibrahimović back to Old Trafford to help his struggling forwards, but also to help with the atmosphere in the dressing room.

However, Mourinho was very clear when he was asked about it in his press conference ahead of United’s Premier League clash with Everton on Sunday:

“No.”

The 37-year-old former Sweden international has had a truly impressive, albeit somewhat turbulent career. After three years with Malmo FF, he spent the same amount of time with Ajax before going to Italy to join Juventus. A three-season spell with Inter Milan followed, and then he joined Barcelona. However, his personality clashed a lot with manager Pep Guardiola, and after only a year, he was loaned out to AC Milan. Another 12 months later, the move was made permanent.

In 2012 he signed for Paris Saint-Germain and scored an impressive figure of 156 goals in 180 appearances for the current French champions, and he joined Mourinho at Manchester United in 2016. Since March this year, he’s been impressive playing for LA Galaxy.

But a return to Old Trafford is not on the cards.
