Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Manchester, Feb 17 (IANS) Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic likened himself to successful fictional Hollywood character Indiana Jones who is the protagonist of the Indiana Jones franchise.

Like Indiana Jones who was an archaeologist and adventurer, the former Sweden capain said he is successful wherever he goes.

“Every trophy for me is incredible. Everywhere I came I won so if I can win something here I will be super happy,” Ibrahimovic was quoted as saying by espnfc.

“People that know me know that I play in many clubs and I try to do my best. Wherever I went I won, so I am like Indiana Jones.”

Ibrahimovic scored 17th treble of his career as United won the Europa League round-of-32 first-leg tie 3-0 against St Etienne. The former Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain star has now scored 17 goals against St Etienne.

“It feels good. I got a lot of help from my teammates. We played an open game today and it was important to get a good result so we can take it into the second leg,” Ibrahimovic said.

“We won 3-0 and I got to score the three goals so I am happy for that. We have still many games to play so hopefully I can continue like I am doing.

“I’ve scored a couple of goals against them. I don’t focus on specific opponents — I just try to do my job, try to do what I am good at.”
