Zlatan Ibrahimovic performs acrobatic scissor kick on holiday

Published Add your comment

The start of the Premier League is less than a month away and there is no sign of Zlatan Ibrahimovic putting his feet up despite being on holiday after his exploits at Euro 2016.

Ibrahimovic will be making his highly-anticipated bow in English football this season after becoming Jose Mourinho's second major signing as Manchester United manager.

The 34-year-old chose to reunite with the former Inter boss after his contract as Paris Saint-Germain expired in the summer and has fought back at critics who claim the Swede's age will make him ineffective in the notoriously fast-paced Premier League.

He has gone even further to prove he still has the athleticism to compete at the highest level with his latest post on Instagram.

Currently enjoying a tour of America, Ibrahimovic took some time out to show off some of his skills on Los Angeles' iconic Venice Beach.

As you will be able to see from the post below, the striker looks to have kept himself in good condition since Sweden were dumped out of Euro 2016 at the group stage.

It was a frustrating tournament for Ibrahimovic, who has now retired from international duty to focus on extending his club career.

The ex-Swedish captain has signed just a one-year deal at Old Trafford but if he can continue his fine goal record from Ligue 1, Serie A and, to a lesser extent, La Liga into the Premier League, there's no reason why he will not extend his stay in Manchester.

The video shows the new Red Devils star complete a few bare-footed keepy ups before leaping up in the air to strike a fierce scissor kick.

It is accompanied with the caption: 'Making soccer look easy at Venice beach #swedenvsfrance', a reference to the 34-year-old's stunning goal at Euro 2012 against the French - also an athletic mid-air volley.

Ibrahimovic is expected to miss his new club's tour of Asia but could make his first appearance in a Man United shirt against Galastaray in the Swedish city of Gothenburg at the end of the month.
