Ibrahimovic jumps to defence of under fire Man Utd boss Mourinho

Ibrahimovic jumps to defence of under fire Man Utd boss Mourinho

It has been claimed Mourinho wants the board to show him they are fully behind him by allowing him to make a signing in the next transfer window.

You would've thought Jose Mourinho may have taken the worldwide break to relax from the stresses of managing Manchester United, but the Portuguese boss elected to venture on his travels on Thursday evening and the Red Devils boss was caught watching Montenegro v Serbia in the UEFA Nations League.

That might seem a long way off given he only moved to Fiorentina previous year and has played just 24 times in Serie A, but his recent rise suggests nothing should be discounted.

It's only rumours at this stage - but Man United fans on social media have been offering their opinions on a potential Ibrahimovic return.

Weather warning as Storm Callum approaches
Met Éireann have just upgraded the yellow weather warning to a Status Orange for 13 counties, as Storm Callum is officially named. The Met Office said there will be strong winds and rainfall up to 10cm, leading to possible flooding and hard driving conditions.

And the poll below confirms their position.

Indeed, Ibrahimovic has been talking about Man United's early-season struggles and recently backed Mourinho to turn things around.

"It really pleased me to hear Adil say that", Pogba told AFP.

Speaking to BetHard, Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic expressed his thoughts regarding his former gaffer, as he stated: "I think he has the ability to win [the Premier League]".

Pogba should have kept views to himself - Saha
Paul Pogba says becoming captain of France is not one of his ambitions, saying he can be a leader on the pitch without an armband. The victor , which will be voted for by a global panel of 176 football journalists, will be announced on December 3.

The LA Galaxy striker further added: "But a coach is only as good as his team, so it's not like he can do miracles if the team is not good enough".

Arguably, Pogba has begun the season in his best-ever form for the Red Devils at a time when the team is failing to click as a whole and lie in eight place in the Premier League table as a result. "This is his third year, the players know more and more the way he wants to play and how he wants it - so I believe, yes".

To some at United, it is not a coincidence that disharmony within the squad has become an issue since Ibrahimovic moved away.

Taylor Swift's Instagram post has caused a massive spike in voter registration
West and Swift engaged in a years-long feud after West interrupted Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Her post stirred widespread reaction on social media, largely along partisan lines, and drew a reaction from Trump on Monday.
