How Zlatan introduced himself to Man United dressing room — it's the most Zlatan thing ever

Zlatan Ibrahimovic signed for Manchester United in 2016 to become part of a huge squad led by Jose Mourinho.

At the time, signing Zlatan had sent waves of excitement through fans as the towering Swede is known for his humour and, well, let's call it self-love.

Juan Mata, who'd joined two years ago from Chelsea, has opened up about the epic manner in which Zlatan introduced himself to the dressing room.

Speaking to FourFourTwo, Mata explained: "Zlatan was fun. 

"When he first arrived in the Carrington dressing room, there were a few players around and the first thing he said was, 'God has arrived'.

"People were freaking out, but after 10 seconds he started laughing and it was just a joke.

"It may sound arrogant, but that’s the way he is."

Zlatan played 53 games for Man United in the brief spell that followed, scoring 29 goals in the process. He joined MLS outfit LA Galaxy after being released as a free agent in 2018.
