Manchester United fans create new chant for Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Published 1 Comments

It really hasn't taken too long for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to become a firm fan favourite at Manchester United.

Scoring three minutes into his first appearance in a United shirt against Galatasaray certainly wasn't a bad way to introduce yourself to a new set of supporters.

And then grabbing the winner in the Community Shield over last season's Premier League champions Leicester really silenced many of the critics who feared the 34-year-old would struggle to have an influence in English football.

Such a brilliant character was always likely to win the fans over and they haven't wasted any time in creating a new song dedicated to the Swede.

You can scroll down to see the full chant but it does tick all of the boxes to become a song we commonly hear echo across Old Trafford for the rest of the campaign.

Firstly, it rhymes - always a good start. It also pokes fun at fierce rivals Manchester City - an aspect which can improve the popularity of any song. Finally, the last word is United - literally music to the ears of any loyal supporter.

It might need a little work to rival the iconic chant about ex-player Park Ji-Sung, but it is still a decent effort at this stage of the season.

The Community Shield victory brought the former Paris Saint-Germain star his 31st trophy in the game, however, he will have his ambitions set much higher than winning just the traditional curtain raiser.

After scoring the winner with a headed finish on Sunday, Ibrahimovic said: “It feels amazing to win the first official game.

“I’ve been here a couple of weeks and I get to win my first trophy with United. This is what we play for.

“It feels good to be in Manchester United and this is what counts.

“My individual performances will come. We’re in the beginning and building up my physique, my conditioning, and I am yet to know the team.”
