A BT Sports Pundit, Owen has been critical of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the past.
Responding to that, Mourinho said: “Zlatan, in spite of your colleague Michael Owen doesn’t like him, the reality is that Zlatan will score more goals in one season than Michael Owen scored in three seasons at Man United”
Owen, then at the twilight of his career, scored 17 goals in 52 matches for Man United.
The ex-Man United player watched Mourinho’s footage with a wry smile
Ibrahimovic already has 13 goals for the Red Devils since joining in the summer.
