Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has spoken of his belief to the BBC that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be a hit at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho has made quite an impact as manager of Manchester United already and his signing of Ibrahimovic has unsurprisingly created quite a buzz among the Red Devils’ faithful as well as in the media.


Despite his advancing years, Ibrahimovic arrives at United with the reputation as one of the finest strikers in the world and the Swedish star has already made an impact at Old Trafford, by breaking power records during his medical ahead of the completion of the move (Daily Mail).

With Ibrahimovic and Mourinho on board, the upcoming season promises to be a very exciting one for everyone associated with United and now club legend Scholes has also gone on to admit that he is looking forward to the 34-year-old in action.

Scholes, who has been a harsh critic of United over the last three seasons, has stated that Ibrahimovic is a charismatic player and believes that the former Paris Saint-Germain attacker will be able to produce his best at Old Trafford.

Speaking to the BBC, Scholes said, “It does excite me yeah. We’re clever enough to know it’s only going to be one or two years but he’s a fit lad and he looks after himself. He’s got great charisma and I think he could pull it off without a shadow of a doubt.”
