Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims he 'needs more haters' in brilliant Instagram post

It’s fair to say Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made an incredible start to his Manchester United career.

The 34-year-old arrived at Old Trafford on a free transfer from Paris Saint-German this summer to reunite with Jose Mourinho - who was his manager for one season at Inter Milan.

But those that thought that this was just one last payday for the Swede have already been proved very wrong.

Ibrahimovic scored a bicycle kick three minutes into his first match for United, in a pre-season friendly against Galatasaray. He then scored the winner against Leicester in the Community Shield, before a strike against Bournemouth on his first Premier League start.

Then, last Friday, he marked his first league match at Old Trafford with a brace against Southampton.

But Zlatan still has one issue. He needs more haters. The legendary forward has posted a typical Ibrahimovic Instagram that reads: “I need new haters. The old ones became my fans.”

It certainly is what we’ve come to expect from Ibrahimovic.

However, his boss has reiterated that the Zlatan that we see isn’t necessarily the real Zlatan.

“He is a good guy,” Mourinho said.

“What he looks like, it is not what he is. The words he says, he says for fun.

“He is the guy capable to go to the kitman and say ‘please give a towel to God’ and then laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh and laugh. The image he sells is not him, he is a good guy. He is brilliant with the young boys.”

Both Mourinho and United fans won’t care how Ibrahimovic acts off the pitch if he continues his incredible start to life at the Theatre of Dreams.
