Mkhitaryan scores a Zlatan-esque goal
To no one’s surprise, Zlatan Ibrahimovic put in a virtuoso display for Manchester United on Boxing Day.
Zlatan set up the opener for Daley Blind, scored the second himself and then set up the goal of the game, scored by Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
The Armenian playmaker swivelled his body to score a scorpion kick that sent Old Trafford into raptures.
“Micki is heel King, I’m heel God”
After the game, as is standard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic spoke to his app, “Zlatan Unplugged”.
Many Manchester United supporters and fans of Zlatan will have been keen to see what he thought of the Mlhitaryan Scorpion Kick, since it is very much a goal out of the Super Swede’s playbook.
Zlatan Unplugged asked Zlatan if he is the undisputed heel king at Manchester United?
To which he replied: “Micki is heel King, I’m heel God.”
Funny stuff. See the full Q&A below.
