This prompted quite the reaction from the Manchester City faithful here in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has never been one to shy away from controversy during his career, and something tells us that that might continue during his spell with Manchester United…
Never one to shy away from the spotlight – Ibrahimovic has fired quite the warning to Manchester City ahead of the Manchester derby this weekend, targeting one new Man City signing in particular
Taking to Instagram, Ibrahimovic has warned new City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo to prepare for this weekend’s fixture – by sending him some training gear before proclaiming: ‘You’re gonna need it.’
A very bold claim from the Swede.
See full captain and attached video below…
Ever the showman, Ibrahimovic is refusing to fade into the background at Man Utd – and is keen to ensure that he gets the advantage over his opposite number against City this weekend.
However, our landlord doesn’t think all of his off-the-field antics are necessary; he should do all his talking on the pitch!
Ibrahimovic has made an electric start to life in Manchester, having already scored 3 goals in his first 3 Premier League games in a United shirt.
Our bar staff have also been impressed with his all-around play, noting that his transitional and link-up play with the players around him as been absolutely superb.
Claudio Bravo, on the other hand, could be set to start his Manchester City career in what the majority of the City fans here in the Tavern tout as the most important game of the season. He will be expected to pull out an absolute belter of a performance.
No pressure, pal.
With so much expectation coming from the Man City faithful, combined with Ibrahimovic’s taunting – our landlord thinks that Bravo will definitely have his work cut out to perform this weekend.
Man City fans – we want to hear from you! Will Bravo be able to put all this pressure behind him? Man Utd fans – expecting another United goal?
