Jose Mourinho: No plan to counter Zlatan Ibrahimovic


Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says there is no secret plan to stop Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Sweden international almost always struggles to make an impact in European games but is expected to lead the French giants on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.

But Mourinho says the focus is on stopping all of Laurent Blanc's men.

"I don't have a plan because it's very difficult to play against a player like him, such a good player," Mourinho said during Tuesday's press conference.

"Normally we don't focus on one player, we focus on the team and this is what we're going to do.

"We're not focused on just one player despite knowing he's fantastic, we'll focus on the team and especially on ourselves.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese was again critical of the French club's approach to the first leg.

"Depends on your concept of football," Mourinho replied to a reporter's question.

"What is to dominate? If it's the number of chances, yes, Paris had more chances then us.

"If to dominate is to stop the opponent to play, making foul after foul, then yes, they also dominate.

"If to dominate is to have the ball and move the ball without progression, then yes, they also dominate.

"So I think they dominated everything except in the result.
