Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a superb goal just four minutes into his Manchester United debut and promised that there would be much more to come after they thrashed Turkish side Galatasaray 5-2 in a friendly in Gothenburg on Saturday.
The 34-year-old Swede, who arrived at Old Trafford on a free transfer after a trophy-laden four-year spell with Paris St Germain, wasted no time in making his presence felt, flinging himself into the air to meet Antonio Valencia’s cross.
He did not get the cleanest contact on the ball but his scissors kick bounced past Fernando Muslera in Galatasaray’s goal and sent thousands of Swedish fans into raptures.
Talk about an instant impact! #ZlatanTime

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored after just four minutes as Manchester United put five past Galatasaray in Gothenburg.
The Swede came out to a rapturous ovation in front of his home fans on his United debut, with every touch cheered vociferously. And it only took him three minutes to open his account, the former PSG man meeting Valencia’s cross with an acrobatic scissor kick that looped off the turf and beyond Nestor Muslera.
Despite their lightning start, United found themselves trailing at half time thanks to goals from Sinan Gumus and Bruma, the latter curling an unstoppable shot past David de Gea and into the far corner.
Jose Mourinho’s half time talk seemed to do the trick and United were a different class after the break, a Wayne Rooney brace and two further goals from Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata completing the rout.
