The defender successfully nullified Ibrahimovic's influence during Watford's 3-1 win last weekend.
Watford defender Miguel Britos has revealed just how to contain Zlatan Ibrahimovic, labelling the Manchester United forward 'arrogant' and someone who 'doesn't like to be touched', according to the Daily Express.
Ibrahimovic was particularly quiet throughout the game, as Watford overwhelmed their opponents with exceptional attacking play.
Uruguayan Britos, who has played against the mercurial Swede during his time in Italy, is familiar with the former Barcelona man, and his experience definitely contributed to Watford's win.
"I did so when he was at Inter and AC Milan. We were able to control him, as well as Rooney.
"He's a bit arrogant and gets annoyed easily. He really doesn’t like being touched.
"But he's still a phenomenon. He’s a very complete player and a great."
Britos' comments should come as a big help to Premier League sides yet to face United, who have lost their last three games on the bounce.
Nullifying Ibrahimovic has proven to be key for Watford, and other teams can take stock of this and pinpoint the 34-year-old in order the reduce United's attacking threat.
