Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s blistering start to his Manchester United career has underlined his status as one of the world’s best players, according to former Juventus and AC Milan team-mate Gianluca Zambrotta.
The in-form Swede, who joined United on a free transfer over the summer, has made a seamless transition to life at Old Trafford and is the Premier League’s joint top scorer with four goals in as many matches.
“I played with Zlatan for two years at Juventus and also for two years at AC Milan, so I know Zlatan very well,” Zambrotta told Sky Sports.
“I know what a good professional he is. Zlatan also has a good personality and is someone that can help give a team a real identity.
“His early goalscoring form has come as no surprise to me because having trained with him I know he is a golden player. I think his form also confirms just how big Zlatan really is as a player.”
