It will certainly be interesting to see how Zlatan fares in the Premier League with many still sceptical about his move, due to his age. However, Jose Mourinho believes the Swede will have no problem settling in and expects the player to work hard in order to help his team win titles.
“Zlatan needs no introduction. The statistics speak for themselves. Ibra is one of the best strikers in the world and a player who always gives 100 per cent. He has won the most important league championships in the world of football, now he has the opportunity to play in the best league in the world and I know he will grasp this opportunity and will work hard to help the team win titles.
