Larsson backs Zlatan.

Former Sweden striker Henrik Larsson is convinced his compatriot Zlatan Ibrahimovic will hit the ground running at Old Trafford.

The former Celtic and Barcelona frontman had a short spell at Old Trafford back in 2007, winning the Premier League title under Sir Alex Ferguson's reign.

However, the 44-year-old is convinced Zlatan will adapt to English football and help bring the glory days back to the Theatre of Dreams.

"Zlatan is gigantic in Sweden," the former Celtic and Barcelona striker told "He is the number one.

"Everyone knows of him and everyone knows about him. There are going to be a lot of people interested to see him as well.

"I think everybody has seen him play but, for a man that big to have the technique he has and the skills he has, it's a pleasure to watch.
