LONDON — New Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has ruled out signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic, saying it "doesn't make sense" because the club already has one of the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane.
Asked whether he could try to sign the former Sweden international, Mourinho says "we have more than a connection. I would say also passion and understanding, an amazing player and an amazing guy, but I would say no. No chance."
Mourinho added about Kane: "We have the best striker in England, we have one of the top two or three strikers in the world, it doesn't make any sense for a striker of Zlatan's dimension — obviously in his late 30s — but still a striker that can play in any club in the world."
