David Beckham delivers verdict on new Man United signing
David Beckham has his say on new Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic
David Beckham has admitted that he is a huge fan of Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Swedish striker is currently getting used to life in the Premier League after his transfer to Old Trafford on a free from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
Ibrahimovic is widely regarded to be one of the top forwards in Europe and has already scored eight goals for Jose Mourinho’s men since his arrival at the club in the summer transfer window.
Beckham played alongside Ibrahimovic during his spell at PSG and the Manchester United legend is a huge fan of the giant striker.
Speaking in an interview with TV4Sport, Beckham said: “His physique, his passion, his love for the game, hasn’t changed.
“He’s still one of the greatest players that has ever played the game – one of the reasons why I’m happy he is now playing at Manchester United, my team. Thanks for that, Zlatan.
“For me, Zlatan is a player who has class, always wants to win, and he proved that when I moved to PSG.”
Manchester United are currently gearing up for their crunch Europa League clash against Feyenoord on Thursday night.
The Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford, although Ibrahimovic was not involved as he served a one-game suspension.
