Ibrahimovic: I will be a United god


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has declared that he will be a 'god' at Manchester United.

Ibrahimovic was welcomed to Old Trafford by club legend Eric Cantona, who claimed that his decision to join United will be the best choice he has ever made but warned him that he would always be the King of Manchester.

"I have a personal message for Zlatan: You decided to go red. It is the best choice you ever made," Cantona said in a video message.

"When you walk into the Theatre of Dreams. When you can feel the ghosts of the legends that have been here before.

"When you score that first goal right in front of Stretford End. When you hear the crowd chanting your name.

"When your heart beats so strong that it bursts out of your chest. When you feel that you will love them as much as they will love you.

"You will know, my friend, that you finally made it home

"Just one last thing, there can only be one King in Manchester. You can be the Prince if you want to. And the number 7 is yours if you are interested. That is my welcome gift to you…The King is gone! Long live the Prince!"

Ibrahimovic has responded to Cantona by warning him that he will be a 'god' at Old Trafford.

"I heard what [Cantona] said and I congratulate him because I have always admired him," Ibrahimovic is quoted as saying by FIFA.

"But he should know that I will not be king of Manchester, I will be a god in Manchester."
