"I got the opportunity and scored".
He said: "I'm very happy".
That may spell bad news for Wayne Rooney, who is back in full training after a three-week absence with a hamstring injury.
Compounding the frustration was Ibrahimovic putting United in front eight minutes later by curling a free kick around the defensive wall past outstretching goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
The unpopular Louis van Gaal managed it last season, steering United to an FA Cup success before making way for Mourinho, who won the League Cup for the third time in 2014-15 during his second spell in charge of Chelsea. However, you have to fancy that Mourinho will get this right, as he has done so often in cup finals before, and claim his first trophy as United manager.
JOSE MOURINHO, explaining why the desire to win is a key ingredient.
But we have people who are showing to me that they want to win this match, and this match is what matters now. United could still potentially win a further two trophies this season and getting a taste for victory at Wembley may only increase their appetite for more silverware.
The United manager is considering switching to a 4-3-3 formation for the match. In that scenario, there would be no No. 10 role for Rooney to occupy.
It would be a massive blow for the Old Trafford outfit to have both Mkhitaryan and Carrick missing from the cup final. "We normally play two different systems".
Is Juan Mata the Premier League's most underrated player? "We were playing and travelling".
"I came, that's special". Mourinho also tied Sir Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough to become the most successful coach in the EFL Cup competition.
"He was outstanding in a match where our opponent was better than us for long periods of the game".
While he may be in the twilight years of his career, his form this season - as well as the feeling that he won't rock the boat if he doesn't play every single match - means that move makes flawless sense.
"When you have a taste of good things, you want to repeat it", the Portuguese said. When you are used to winning and you don't win, you miss it and you don't accept it.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now scored 26 goals in his first season with Manchester United.
The future 45th president of the United States had the fate of the competition in his hands as he made the quarter-final draw at Trump Tower four months previously.
Mourinho felt the result was harsh on Southampton and manager Claude Puel.
"I came to win and I want to keep going. It was a good taste for them, so we have to try".
