Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been absolute blockbuster, so far. Sure, it was obvious he was going to be, but there was this fear that the iconic striker had maybe come to the Premier League too late for us to fully appreciate his ego and footballing ability.

The former Paris Saint-Germain striker is going to be playing – and no doubt starring – in his first ever Manchester Derby. A game which is arguably the biggest match in the Premier League, this season, due to the Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho back story. However, the pressure won’t phase the ultimate ego, in fact, he’s thriving off it.
In true ‘I Am Zlatan’ style, the 34-year-old upped the ante ahead of the big Old Trafford clash – and in turn gave his clothing line a little helping hand – by trolling Manchester City’s new no.1, Claudio Bravo.
Got to be honest, we expected more from the message scrawled out for Chile’s No.1 ‘keeper, something a bit more amusing and/or controversial. But I suppose Ibra was in a rush, considering he still had to go out and meet the Manchester United fans.
