Jose Mourinho has revealed that his summer signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be allowed to enjoy more break time than every other Old Trafford player as teams prepare for the international break.

Mourinho will allow only a 2-day break for all players who have not been selected for international games, except the Swede who’ll get 4 days to relax.

The former PSG, Barcelona and Juventus star joined Manchester United on a free transfer this summer, having retired from international football in June. He captained Sweden national team at Euro 2016 in France.

According to Mou, the 34-year-old requires a longer holiday for health reasons. A good rest means having more to offer when he returns to Old Trafford, the coach believes.

The Portuguese coach said: “The other guys who aren’t selected for their national teams, I give them two days off. Four days off for the big guy (Zlatan).

“If you’re 34 years of age, you need to rest. You can’t play 70 matches. For Zlatan, I give holidays a la carte.”

Ibrahimovic “The Big Guy” has already netted four goals for the Red Devils since this 2016/17 season kicked off.
