Zlatan Ibrahimovic responds brilliantly to question about Manchester City fans

Zlatan Ibrahimovic might be experiencing something of a goal drought right now, but that's not going to deter him from his usual big talk.

The Manchester United star is as popular for his witty comments as his goals, and it's fair to say that even now he's turned 35, he's still full of confidence.

This is actually the longest the former Sweden international has been without a goal in six years, but fortunately, his form in the early stages of this season has prevented him from being labelled a flop like fellow signings Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Ibra will be hoping to end his baron spell by finding the back of the net if he's given his chance against Manchester City in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night - it might not be the most significant of derbies between the two clubs, but as always, it's still a pretty big deal to both sets of fans.

Speaking of those fans, Ibrahimovic had a hilarious response, per the Mirror, when asked whether he had spoken to any City supporters ahead of the game.

"I met a lot… but they became United supporters when they met me!"

Zlatan is literally the only player who could get away with making remarks like that time and time again, although it's fair to say he usually backs them up with his performances on the pitch.

Ibra stifled 

Jose Mourinho will be desperate for him to rediscover his best form, but it's not just down to the misfiring striker. United's tactics have arguably stifled him in recent games, so it's no wonder he hasn't been topping up his goal tally.

Given that his signing didn't cost the Red Devils a penny - if you discount his massive wages, that is - the club won't be too worried about the fact he's gone a few games without a goal, as he's already been pretty good value.

With the pressure mounting on Mourinho, though, he'll be hoping Ibra can get back to doing what he does best again soon - but it doesn't seem likely that he'll be converting too many City fans regardless.

Will Manchester United finish in the top four this season? Have your say in the comments.
