Manchester United To Offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic Coaching Role To Aid Next Generation Of Forwards
Posted by Jordan Clarke | Published on December 25, 2016
Manchester United are reportedly considering offering Zlatan Ibrahimovic a coaching role at the club once he draws a close to his career, in an effort to aid the growth of youngsters like Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
According to The Daily Star, Manchester United want to keep the Swede at Old Trafford to work under José Mourinho as the club look to regain their glory days in the Premier League. Ibrahimovic, who has scored 11 goals in the league this season, is rumoured to wish to finish his career in the MLS, but after his good spell of form at Manchester United, and the relationship building with the fans, the offer could be tempting to Zlatan, if he decided to travel down the coaching route.
The Daily Star report that a source close to the club have told them:
“Zlatan has one eye on the future and is keen to become a manager in his own right.
“United recognise this and will be willing to help him. He is such a positive influence on those around him that a coaching role would suit all parties.”
Should United manage to land the deal, the club would have an incredibly egotistic coaching team in Mourinho and Ibrahimovic and perhaps it will gift them what they’ve been missing since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, the winning mentality.
