AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said he loved proving his doubters wrong during his time at English club Manchester United.

The 40-year-old Swedish striker spent two fulfilling years at Old Trafford between 2016 and 2018.

Ibrahimovic found the back of the net 28 times and claimed the Carabao Cup and Europa League title – his first and only European trophy – during his maiden campaign at the Old Trafford outfit.

While speaking on a podcast, Ibrahimovic said: “I had fun.

“I really enjoyed because when I came, everybody was against it. And then in England, they didn’t like me.

“All these haters, after three months, they started to like me, I didn’t like them anymore.

“I like people when they hate you because then they bring out the better of you. I had fun. [It] is a great competition, [an] amazing atmosphere.”

The former Ajax striker also said: “I’m happy I played for United, which I think is the best team in England. And I think it was the right choice to go to Manchester United.

“I think I came in a good moment. Because it’s easy to come to a club when the success is already there. It’s more difficult when you come and the challenge is different.”
