Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has described Zlatan Ibrahimovic's decision not to play in the Premier League as a "pity".

The Paris Saint-Germain striker claimed on Tuesday that he has no desire to move to England, as his current side prepares to face Chelsea in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Mourinho believes that it would be unfortunate if the Swede chooses to snub what he believes is the best league in the world.

"It is a pity for Ibrahimovic if he finishes his career and hasn't played in the best league the world," Mourinho is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"However, his career is so full of success that he's one of the greatest players even if he didn't play in the Premier League."

Chelsea play PSG at the Parc des Prince on Wednesday in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
