Ibrahimovic Deserves A Ballon D'Or - Mourinho




Zlatan Ibrahimovic deserves to win a Ballon d'Or, according to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

In an exclusive interview with MUTV, the boss admits he is perplexed as to why the 35-year-old has never won the world's best-player prize and suggests an incredible end to an already successful season should propel United's top goalscorer into the reckoning for the 2017 accolade.
Surprisingly, Ibrahimovic has yet to even make the top three in the voting, with ex-Reds forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona wizard Lionel Messi filling the top two slots for the past six years. However, the Swedish striker's wonderful introduction to English football will deserve recognition, if he can help bring more silverware to Old Trafford this season.
"I think what he has done is amazing," Mourinho told MUTV. "The number of goals he’s scored, the two matches at Wembley, the trophies, what he is in the group, and what he means. I think he is absolutely phenomenal. No more words. 
"I just gave an interview to a big French magazine with big responsibilities in these big awards, the FIFA Golden Ball and so on. I know about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. I know what they are and what they are doing but I can’t believe this big man, with the career he’s having, I can’t believe he’s never won it. 
"So why not this season, if he can do something special? If he can win more trophies, reach Stockholm and the Europa League final. Why not this man, who is 35 years old, to get that deserved award?"
