Former Sweden striker Henrik Larsson believes striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic can bring the glory days back to Manchester United.
The Reds summer signing could make his eagerly-awaited debut in Saturday’s friendly against Galatasaray in Gothenburg and expectations are high for the world-class attacker, reports the Manchester United website.
Larsson, who won the Premier League during a short spell at Old Trafford in 2007, is confident Ibrahimovic will settle quickly at United.
‘He is the number one. Everyone knows of him and everyone knows about him. There are going to be a lot of people interested to see him as well,’ Larsson said.
‘I think everybody has seen him play but, for a man that big to have the technique he has and the skills he has, it’s a pleasure to watch.
‘So I have to hope everything goes well now when he comes to Manchester United. Hopefully, he can bring United back to where it belongs.’
