Zlatan Ibrahimovic is raring to go having admitted that he is eagerly looking forward to his Manchester United debut.
The 34-year-old summer signing was unavailable for his club’s tour of China earlier this month having been granted an extended break following his Euro 2016 exploits, but he has been included in the 23-man squad to face Galatasaray on Saturday.
The match will take place in Gothenburg, and the Swede said he is “feeling good” ahead of his first United appearance in his home country.
“I’m feeling good. During the summer I have been training because I like to kept myself active so I feel good now after two, three days with the team. I’ve got to know the players outside and inside the pitch and I’m very excited,” he told the club’s official website.
“I’m looking forward to the first game. To make my debut in my country, it will feel great. Coming with my team to Sweden, it’s not the first time – I’ve been a couple of times with different teams – but they always make me feel welcome and for sure they will do this time also.”
Ibrahimovic will hope for more successes with United having won a league title in 13 of his last 15 seasons.
