The Swedish striker worked alongside Mourinho at Inter Milan during the 2008-09 season when the Nerazzurri won Serie A and Ibrahimovic finished the season as the league’s top goalscorer.

Although the 33-year-old has worked alongside some of the best coaches in the world, including Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti, he claims that none of them are as good as the current Chelsea boss.

He told the Guardian: “Mourinho is very intelligent. He doesn’t treat everybody the same. He knows how to treat people as individuals to get 100 percent out of them.

“He’s the most intelligent coach I’ve worked with in the way he approaches players and – ‘manipulates’ is the wrong word – gets them very pumped up. No doubt.”

The former Barcelona forward has won a host of honours in Spain, Italy, France and the Netherlands but has never won the Champions League.

Although he retains hope that he can lift the giant trophy one day, Ibrahimovic won’t feel his career is a failure if he never wins Europe’s biggest club competition.

“Let’s go back 15 years and all I saw then has come true. Everybody who was trash-talking me? Now they are eating their words. This is my real trophy.

“I have won 23 collective titles but the one that is missing is the Champions League. At PSG we are trying to win it. But even if we don’t, the 23 I have already won, coming from where I did, are incredible. I’ve had an amazing adventure.”
