Man Utd fan's custom 'Pogbahimovic' shirt is sure to divide opinion

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba effortlessly settling into life at Old Trafford, Manchester United fans are, understandably, keen to show their appreciation for the two summer arrivals.

But, with the price of a United home shirt complete with name and number coming in at around £70 quid these days, it isn't easy for your average supporter to pay homage to both stars with two separate shirts.

That might explain, then, the thought process behind one United shirt that is doing the rounds online today which attempts, in its own unique pay, to represent Zlatan and Pogba in equal measure.

The blue United third strip was proudly displayed on Instagram this morning by a user under the name martin_steblovnik.

Taking inspiration from the much debated half-and-half scarves often seen around football grounds these days, he came up with this...

10 points for creativity, but it has to be a big fat zero for execution.

We understand the desire to jump on board the Zlatan and Pogba hype trains, but there just isn't any need for this.

It is one step up from those shirts you see that have used black marker and duct tape to change the name, but at least that is free to do. The 'Pogbahimovic' shirt cost actual money to create.

And don't even get us started on the number 69. It may combine the two star's United squad numbers, but he knew what he was doing.

While he might be laughed out of Old Trafford if the fan ever donned the shirt to a game, the jersey is yet more proof at just what an impact both Ibrahimovic and Pogba are already having in Manchester.

With four goals in his first three games for the club, Zlatan has already proven he is capable of performing in the Premier League.

Pogba's arrival, meanwhile, has taken the feel-good factor around the club up a notch - and he has only played one game.

There could yet be many good things to come for United this season. The 'Pogbahimovic' shirt is not one of them.
