Following the two goals he scored for Manchester United in our 3-2 win over Southampton in the League Cup, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has discussed his future at the club, as well as why he decided to move to Old Trafford in the first place.
We have another two months of the season to go. Let’s see how I feel, the situation. Somebody made up a story that if we don’t qualify for the Champions League I will not extend. It has nothing to do with that.
My mind was not here, then my kids started to bump my head – even they wanted to see me play at United. Then Jose called. When he called, it was basically: ‘Tell me what number I should wear.’ My kids are satisfied with what I am doing, but this time I am the boss, not them.
I came here when people thought it was impossible for me to do what I am able to do. It feels good. I am enjoying it. I always want more. This is my 32nd trophy. I’ve been in five different countries, I’ve been in the best clubs in the world and I’m repeating every year what I am doing. I will stop on top. If I don’t perform, I will not play. I will not be like others, still playing because they are who they are. I will play as long as I can bring results.
