LA Galaxy striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has recalled a time when Jose Mourinho tore into him in the dressing room, in front of his team-mates.

Ibrahimovic was at Inter Milan when Mourinho arrived in Italy, before the pair reunited at Manchester United in 2016.

Mourinho has previously admitted Ibrahimovic will have a special place in his heart, but the striker has opened up on one particular dressing down from his former boss.

“When they say he is too outspoken in the media, if he is outspoken in the media about you, he has been outspoken to you directly.

“I had a situation at Inter where we had done a bad first half and in front of the team at half-time, he was criticising me.

“I was supposed to be getting an award for being the best player in Italy and he said … ‘When you go on to that stage and receive your award, you should feel ashamed. The way you are playing now, you do not deserve it’,” Ibrahimovic told UK Mirror.
