Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival at Manchester United was celebrated within an instant, while his debut as a Red Devil had the punters in the Transfer Tavern in delight after just three minutes.
The superstar Swede notched an incredible scissor kick just three minutes into his United career and the 34-year old has taken to life at Old Trafford with incredible ease.
Now, according to the Sun, the former Barcelona and Juventus ace is said to have established his status off the field, as well as on.
They claim that Jose Mourinho has opted to make him the club’s vice-captain, just over a month after he arrived on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.
He will be handed the armband in the event of neither Wayne Rooney or Michael Carrick being on the pitch, joining illustrious company.
One of the biggest personalties in the game, the Swedish legend is said to have had a huge impact already at the Theatre of Dreams.
“Some of the other lads, especially the young ones, are in awe of Zlatan”, a United source told the publication.
“He brings a presence to the place and people look up to him after everything that he has achieved through his career.
“He has experience at the highest level and is seen as an obvious captain when the other lads aren’t on the pitch.”
Will Zlatan and Mourinho lead Man United to the league? Let us know below…
