The legend of Manchester United; Eric Cantona, the man who wrote special history in Old Trafford, deifies Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who heads gave victory 3-2 over Southampton in the final of the League Cup. The 35th years old Swede forward has made so far 15 goals in 24 games in the Premier League seems to enjoy his presence in English football. Presented more mature than ever and reciprocates the love of the club`s fans, recording one after the other goals.
Kant sees the face of a player Zlatan, interested to help with his experience and young children. To convey enough of his knowledge so as to become gradually better and better: "There are two types of players that are relatively older in age. Of those who are young because they want to keep themselves as much as they do not like is the others that help young childrens" were the first words of Cantona.
The old French international striker continues: "I remember when I was 17, I played with Szarmach. The pole had taken part in two world cups semifinals. He was a great footballer and helped me too. I remember that and I said to myself when I was a great moment. I will try to do the same. And I`m sure it does now and Ibrahimovic. It is very useful for new players. He is a great player with a strong personality, is the most correct and old player who wants to help younger. It is very important to have an experienced player who gives an example for others".
Cantona, adds to Zlatan: "It`s a great footballer and a strong personality. He played in Milan. He played in Barcelona. So knows all the issues related to pressure. He understands what is shown, while also being a great man".
Deified and José Mourinho
But Cantona, mentioned the portuguese coach of the "Red Devils" José Mourinho. "Mourinho is a winner. He has won a lot of things. It`s a great coach and I think United are with him will win many things. The first is important, I think. At a club like of course, you have the pressure of winning. When there is less pressure beats. But people ask a lot more somethings that is natural and Mourinho has no problem with the pressure. So many years in golf has seen too much. He has conducted many great clubs and has won many things. It has improved the team and therefore prevailed".
The "Red Devils" this amounted to 41 trophies and caught Liverpool on top. Manchester has 20 leagues, 12 cups, 5 League Cup, 3 European championships and a European Cup.
The "Special One" already counted three titles with Chelsea, the seasons 2004/2005, 2006/2007 and 2014/2015 and now he won his first title and the United.
