Zlatan Ibrahimovic delivered hilarious post-match interview after Swansea brace

Football News

Zlatan Ibrahimovic responded to the critics in perfect fashion on Sunday.

The Swede had scored just once in 11 matches prior to today’s game at Swansea, a return which prompted many to wonder whether the 35-year-old had the legs to be a Premier League star.

We’re not to know whether the brace he fired will spark an upturn in form, but it’s a very good start.

Unfortunately for United, Ibra picked up a booking that means we won’t see him again in a Premier League fixture until November 27.

But giving his ageing years, an extended break might be the best thing for him.

Not only did he take his tally on the season to eight goals, but he also scored the 25,000th Premier League goal.

Upon hearing a record like that in a post-match interview, you’d imagine most players would offer a short smile before deflecting the achievement back on their teammates.

Not Zlatan.

Funny interview

He wasn’t aware of his historic strike and delivered a brilliant line when he found out about it.

“I thought that was only me who had scored 25,000,” he joked.

Then, discussing his yellow card, Ibrahimovic questioned the validity of the claims that English football is rough.

Check out his entire post-match interview below. You can see his goals underneath the video.

International break

Paul Pogba was also on the scoresheet as Manchester United won their first league game since defeating Leicester City in September.

Jose Mourinho’s side were on a dismal run, and the Portuguese will probably be rather gutted that his team will now depart for another international break.

The Red Devils won’t be in action again until November 19, when they host Arsenal.
