It appears Jose Mourinho has a lot more in common with Zlatan Ibrahimovic than he may have thought. 

The new Manchester United manager has never been the most demure of characters in the Premier League, and now he has announced his arrival at the club on Instagram in typically modest fashion. 

Mourinho posted a video of himself getting off the train at Manchester Piccadilly station, with the brilliant caption: "I am here."

Mourinho arrives 

Of course, while the Portuguese boss only officially took over at the start of July, his presence has been felt at Old Trafford even before it was confirmed he would be taking over from predecessor Louis van Gaal. 

Since his arrival, United have signed Eric Bailly and Ibrahimovic, while a deal for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is believed to be close. 

Mourinho's Instagram post was more than a little reminiscent of Ibrahimovic's hilarious social media antics, which last week saw him declare "I am Sweden". 

And after leaving Paris Saint-Germain, the maverick forward wrote the now famous caption: "I came like a king, left like a legend."

Big talk 

Admittedly, even Mourinho might not quite be on that level of confidence, but it's a good sign that United's new duo have the swagger to turn the Red Devils back into contenders. 

He's timed his statement well too, just a day after Manchester City unveiled his nemesis Pep Guardiola, who promised his players he would "kick their a****". 

The first Manchester derby of the season will take place on September 10, when it will left to the players to do live up to their managers' big talk on the pitch. 

Can Mourinho win the league in his first season at Old Trafford? Have your say in the comments.
