Chelsea v PSG: Just Zlatan and Jose things

A repeat of last year’s quarter final sees Hosay Mourinho’s Chelsea take on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s PSG in this year’s last 16. The first leg of the tie is in Paris on Tuesday as Chelsea attempt to reach the final for the first year since 2012. (Did you know that 2012 was the Chinese year of the Drog?)

We could go through how Zlatan and Mourinho are no strangers but #Cliché right?

Well here at Paddy Power, we like to ask the serious questions. The questions that you think of while you’re in the shower… or using the toilet without your phone.

So while Mourinho’s men might be favourites at 4/9 to qualify, I wondered which man had the best sayings. This ground breaking research will help you to decide which team to pick for that cheeky midweek accumulator of yours.

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you: Zlatan v Mourinho. 5 topics, 10 quotes, and the winner gets the glory of a spot on my fiver accumulator too.

Topic One – Transfers

Mourinho: “It is like having a blanket that is too small for the bed. You pull the blanket up to keep your chest warm and your feet stick out. I cannot buy a bigger blanket because the supermarket is closed. But I am content because the blanket is cashmere. It is no ordinary blanket.”

Zlatan: “Arsene Wenger asked me to have a trial with Arsenal when I was 17. I turned it down. Zlatan doesn’t do auditions… Who do you think regrets it more – Arsenal, or Zlatan”.

Verdict: Mourinho takes this one. But only just. It’s reminiscent of Eric Cantona and his seagulls.

Zlatan 0 – 1 Mourinho


Topic Two – Themselves

M: “Please don’t call me arrogant, but I’m European champion and I think I’m a special one.”

Z: “The next step? I don’t know… Maybe replacing the Eiffel Tower with an Ibrahimovic statue…”

Verdict: Mourinho’s statement is too famous so…

Zlatan 0 – 2 Mourinho

Topic Three – Football

M: “I called Sir Alex to tell him I was returning to England. The next day he retired”. Jose on the second coming.

Z: “Only God knows… You’re talking to him now.” Ibra’s response to a journalist who asked his opinion on the outcome of Sweden v Portugal.

Verdict: God wins 

Zlatan 1 – 2 Mourinho


Topic Four – Women

M: “My wife trusts me, my wife knows me. She has been with me since I was 17 and she was 15 – everything is so crystal clear for us”

Z: “Come to my house and you’ll see if I’m gay… And bring your sister” ZI in response to a joke made by a female reporter due to a photo of him hugging Pique.

Verdict: It is lovely and all but… Nah Valentine’s Day is gone so it is Zlatan for me Clive.

Zlatan 2 – 2 Mourinho

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Sweden

Topic Five – Each other

M: “I’m just glad that I don’t have to face him all the time. It’s not that I’m scared of him and what he can do, no, but I do respect him and what he can do.”

Z: “Mourinho would become a guy I was basically willing to die for.”

Verdict: Chelsea are the team for my accumulator! Mourinho nicks it in the end. I mean seriously, a guy you would be willing to die for? No brainer.

Zlatan 2 – 3 Mourinho
