He suffered one of the worst goal scoring droughts of his career, but has returned to fine form, taking his tally to 13 goals across all competitions, with eight goals in his last eight games.
The big Swede has been heavily criticised in recent times over his style of play by Michael Owen, but he has undoubtedly been a massive success since his arrival at Old Trafford.
Speaking about Ibrahimovic before Wednesday’s clash against Crystal Palace, Mourinho highlighted his goal scoring record compared to Owen’s during his time at the club.
“We need to score more goals,” he said.
“We are living on Zlatan’s goals at the moment. Michael Owen doesn’t like him but the reality is he scored 17 goals in three years at Man United and Zlatan will have scored that many in just six months.”
Man United have struggled to score goals as a team and Ibrahimovic’s fine form has been a blessing for Jose Mourinho as he’s helped the players around him shine.
Hopes are he can continue to score goals as he’s been a vital player for United so far this season.
