Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed just how hard it can be to work alongside a player like Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
In an interview with Spanish sports publication Marca, Herrera said that the 35-year-old Swedish striker carries his ferocious will to win into everything he does off the pitch too.
"Ibrahimovic can be very annoying," Herrera said, "because he wants to win it all – even at football tennis.
"He is a genius. He can say that he will score 30 goals and that he is the best because he can get away with it. He is so good that he can do that."
2016-17 marks Ibrahimovic's maiden season in English football, after a long, trophy-laden career with Ajax, Juventus, Internazionale, Barcelona, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.
Signed as a free agent after leaving PSG in the summer, Zlatan has already more than proven his worth to the Manchester United faithful.
The Swede has netted 26 goals in 41 games for United so far this term, including a brace in the EFL Cup final win against Southampton – after which he declared, in typically grandiose third-person voice: "The legend can still deliver."
Back in July, just weeks after signing and without having yet played a competitive game for his new club, Ibrahimovic had predicted: "I won't be King of Manchester. I will be God of Manchester."
