La Galaxy star Zlatan Ibrahimovic says hes super proud to have played for Manchester United and says the club will remain in his heart.

The Swede joined United in 2016 at the age of 34 and scored 26 goals in his first season at the club, scoring twice in the EFL Cup final along the way.

The forward was cruelly ruled out of Uniteds Europa League final date with Ajax after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament and the injury meant Ibrahimovic made just a handful more appearances for the club before moving Stateside.

Many believed Ibrahimovic would never move to the Premier League but the veteran says hes delighted he did and says Manchester United was the right club for him.

We won, and I did what I did before I got injured.

I had an excellent time — great memories. Im attached to United forever. The supporters are amazing: wherever I went, I saw red shirts, which was fantastic. Its a very important moment in my career.

As I said when I was in England, youre lucky I didnt come 10 years ago, because if I did what I did at 35 years old, imagine it if I was 25. Then it would have been a different story.

I came there and they said I came in a wheelchair. All the people that talked, in the whole Premier League, I put them in a wheelchair. Thats what I did.
