Jose Mourinho believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic has “proved he is a superman” with his superb form for Manchester United.
“I’m so pleased for him,” he told BBC Sport. “He’s the kind of player who doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone but when he decides to come to England in the last period of his career, to the most difficult championship, I think he proved he’s a superman in his mentality.
“What he’s doing is fantastic. At the age of 35, I think it’s a dream for every striker of 25 to arrive in the Premier League and impress as he is doing.
“I need to give him a rest and now we have a week, we don’t have a match after 48 hours. It’s not just him.”
