Juan Mata: I had no personal problems with Jose Mourinho

Juan Mata: I had no personal problems with Jose Mourinho

Classic Zlatan. However, the 36-year-old has been dropping classic lines since his very first day at the club and Juan Mata has revealed the brilliant story of Ibrahimovic meeting the club's kit men.

Multiple reports indicate that David Silva is a strong doubt for City, even though United boss Jose Mourinho has said publicly that he disputes the veracity of this narrative.

The Spanish worldwide was heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford once Mourinho was appointed - especially after what happened during the 2016 Community Shield. "I'm going to take off the smallest guy".

As recalled by teammate Juan Mata, the Swede didn't let nerves get the better of him on his arrival and instead set about striking fear into the hearts of United's kit men.

Leeds defender Jansson says that Ibrahimovic can all but decide to book a spot in the World Cup squad himself and believes it is 50-50 whether the striker will be on the plane to Russian Federation.

He added: "Zlatan has a strong temper".

"He's getting more and more games at Manchester [United], so if he wants to come he's going to come, but I would say it's like 50/50 at the moment". Many people don't agree with him.

"Firstly, that I had no kind of personal problem with him, no matter what the press said, and secondly I wanted to show what I could bring to the team, to prove myself". But when we landed in Rostov I told him: 'You see who the real God is'.

We guess even gods succumb to the wrath of the dodgy cruciate ligament from time to time.

I don't expect Jose Mourinho to go all out and play extremely aggressive in this one, but I also don't think he'll park the bus either.

"That's his reasoning. I understood it, because he'd told me what he was going to do before the change".
