Zlatan Ibrahimovic has only lived in the city of Manchester for barely three months but he already knows how it feels like to play for one of the two rival clubs in the city.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker scored Manchester United’s only goal as they were beaten 2-1 by City last month in the Swede’s first ever Manchester derby but he seems to be appreciated by the blue half of Manchester.

During a recent interview with MUTV, Ibrahimovic revealed how City supporters suddenly turn United fans whenever they sight him around town.

Asked if he had bumped into any City fans around Manchester, he joked: “I’ve met a lot but they became United supporters when they met me!”

United will be looking to shake off their embarrassing 4-0 loss to Chelsea in the Premier League when they host City tonight in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford.
