Last match the Swedish striker scored two goals for his side and because of him they beat the home team Swansea City, but the manager is now focusing on the team’s improvised back line.


The Portuguese manager thinks it does not matter if the Swedish striker scores or not as last night they thrashed their opponents by 3-1, and Ibrahimovic had a huge role behind their success.


Last match the world record fee holder Player Paul Pogba scores the first goal for the Red Devils then in the second half the Dutch defender Mike van der Hoorn scored the equalizer for the home team then the veteran striker Ibrahimovic netted two goals for his side and earn his side all the three points.


In the last six matches the 35 year old striker did not manage to score a goal for his club in any competition but last night he end his drought by scoring two for his side,but the special one underrate the thing.

 


"He's a great player for the team," Mourinho, who served his one-match touchline ban in the stands, told MUTV. "Okay today he scored goals, he didn't in the past few matches, but that doesn't matter at all.

"One thing is a striker who doesn't score goals and doesn't do anything else. Another thing is a striker that doesn't score goals but does everything else.

"During this period where he was not scoring goals he did everything else for the team. So I'm very happy that he's back to scoring."


Last match the special one put Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Phil Jones, into the back while the other main player like {Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and  Luke Shaw got injured}but the players displayed some amazing performance for the team only concede one goal.


"I'm really pleased," Mourinho added. "I think for all of us from the United side it was a calm day.

"I think since the first minute we felt that we were in the game, that we were stable and that we were in control.

"The players were really good in their focus, in their effort, in their concentration.

"Following the gameplan I think they were really good and I'm very happy for all of them, but especially for people like Ashley Young, playing outside his position,  and Phil Jones - brave guy to say 'I'm ready for the team' when he wasn't ready.

"After two or three months without kicking a ball he was ready only [in the head], but [in the head] is where it matters.

"I'm happy for Marcos playing his third consecutive match as a central defender, I'm happy for Matteo because left-back is not his position, so the defensive line showed great personality. I'm pleased for them."
