Sweden legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic is drumming support for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to continue doing his best despite different shades of criticism.
According to Sky Sport report, the Red Devils boss Mourinho in under-fire at Old Trafford, but he insists it is a handiwork of a "manhunt".
And Ibrahimovic is claiming there are more things behind the current happenings at the Old Trafford.
"Everybody criticises Mourinho and I don't think it's because of the results, it's because of the character, because of the way he is," Ibrahimovic told Sky Sports News.
Speaking further, the former Manchester forward, who currently plies his trade with MLS side LA Galaxy, said: "I see myself also a little bit in that situation, we have our confidence, we believe in things, we say certain things. In our own way," noted Ibrahimovic, who was quick to add that he shares similarities with Mourinho and cannot be a darling of the press.
"Of course we get the blame, we get criticised more when it is not going good, but when it is going good and we win the satisfaction is bigger than the other ones that are political, think they're perfect, and want to be no trouble for the media so the media never attacks them," he added.
"That is not us, we are ourselves, we believe in what we do and we do it until the end.
"Some critics I feel personal, some critics are exaggerating, some because of the way he is, some because of jealousy. But all this is part of the circle.
"Mourinho just has to keep being himself, stand up for what he is doing, stand up for what he is.
"He is there because he did it his own way, because he is who he is and don't change for anybody.
"I am exactly the same, I don't change for anybody. Everyone out there who thinks they are perfect, they are the biggest problem out there," added the veteran forward, who also has some words of advice for fans of the Red Devils ahead of this weekend's Premier League date against Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge.
"Jose is doing a good job, you're as good as your team," he stressed. "There is no coach in the world who can do miracles with a team.
"Of course, results speak for themselves. The results are not on top, it goes bad, sometimes goes better, it's part of the season.
"But the Premier League is not easy and if someone knows how to win it, it ' s him. So like he said himself, more Premier League than all the league's coaches won together," Ibra sounded off.
Interestingly, a win at west London will not guarantee Mourinho's tutored-side a leap into the top four, but Ibrahimovic remains confidence the Portuguese boss still possess the magic wand to improve things at Manchester United.
