Ibrahimovic: 'I will be a god in Manchester'

FOOTBALL By Game Yetu | July 19th 2016

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Eric Cantona that he will become a “god” at Manchester United after the club legend claimed that the summer signing could be the Red Devils’ new “prince”.

The Sweden international joined Jose Mourinho’s team on a free transfer at the start of the month following a four-year spell at Paris Saint-Germain.

Cantona, who is known as ‘The King’ by United fans, recently told Ibrahimovic: “There can only be one King in Manchester. You can be the Prince if you want to.” The 34-year-old, though, is keen to be much more at Old Trafford.

He told Aftonbladet: “I heard what he said and I congratulate him because I have always admired him, but he should know that I will not be king of Manchester.

 I will be a god in Manchester.” Ibrahimovic is yet to join up with his new teammates as he has been given time off following Sweden’s campaign at Euro 2016.
