The Portuguese manager thinks that Manchester United dressing room is lacking and a player like Zlatan Ibrahimovic has opened up the coaching methods.


The special one avouched signing the Veteran Ibrahimovic was required for Manchester United as the dressing room was missing the lacked personality of previous generations.

This season United are desperate to get back in the Champions league and regain their place in the Premier league,

After Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement they fail to do so but this year they brought the special one and added some high profile players in their squad.

Since October the Red Devils sis not lost any single premier league games but still they are sitting at the fifth spot on the table and the Manchester United coach says he have to adapt the new atmosphere.

Mourinho said: "Manchester United no longer has the super personalities of the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes or Roy Keane,"

"There is Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick, who are the last faces of this generation, and there is a new group of players that has to adapt. 

"That's why it was important for me to get Zlatan. In this team he had, without being English, without knowing the culture of the club, the personality and the profile to be more."

The special one also speaks about his coaching techniques and also said that it is important for a player to open up and create a right mentality in the dressing room.

He added: "You have to adapt to the reality of the club, its needs and its demands,"

"It is called being intelligent. The priority is to establish relations of peace and love in a group, to create stability.

"From a psychological point of view, the stronger empathy in a group, the more consistent the relationship between players, and the more you are ready. The "mind game", which involves trying to manipulate someone psychologically via the media, is a way to create a state of mind, but it is most effective when you have a team full of personalities ready to absorb this kind of speech. 

"At Inter, I was like a fish in the water in this area. I had Marco Materazzi, Ivan Cordoba, Ibrahimovic, Diego Milito, Thiago Motta – guys who were willing to follow me everywhere . After that, it's another thing to work at a club where players do not have the same profile. So before you go in a different direction, you first need to understand the people you work with."
