New Man United signing comments on Leicester showdown
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is desperate to get his Manchester United career off to a winning start...
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has insisted that he is desperate to help Manchester United beat Leicester City to win the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.
The Red Devils are preparing to take on the Premier League champions at Wembley in what will be their first chance to win a trophy under new manager Jose Mourinho.
Ibrahimovic is one of three new summer signings to have arrived at Old Trafford under Mourinho and the veteran striker has made no secret of his desire to add to his medal haul.
And the 34-year-old forward has revealed that he is already relishing the prospect of winning his first trophy with United since his arrival on a free transfer earlier in the summer transfer window.
Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Ibrahimovic said: “It’s the first trophy game against Leicester. One game, one trophy. I’m used to winning trophies. I didn’t come here to waste time.
“That is the first trophy game and that is the first trophy we will bring home. For me, every trophy is very serious. I have collected 30 trophies and I want to collect more of them. I’m not satisfied until I collect everything. That’s what we play for. I play to win.
“Wherever I came, they also play to win. I didn’t come here to lose time. I came here to win. I believe the philosophy is the same for the club, especially a club like this. They are made to win.
“That is the way it is. The first game, one game and one trophy. I’ve played with the national team in England against Sweden and it’s a huge stadium so I’m looking forward to that also.”
United finished fifth in the Premier League last season and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal before they moved quickly to bring in Mourinho as the club’s new manager back in May.
