Zlatan Ibrahimovic mocked Arsenal and Liverpool for their lack of major trophies in recent years after Manchester United’s EFL Cup final win over Southampton.
The 35-year-old scored twice, including the late winner which took his tally to 26 this season, as United edged a five-goal thriller at Wembley on Sunday.
Including the Community Shield, Ibrahimovic now has two winners’ medals during his seven months in England, half as many trophies as Arsenal have collected since 2005.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have only one FA Cup and a League Cup success as tangible reward for their efforts since 2006 and the iconic Swede wasted no time in pointing out those facts after his matchwinning heroics.
‘We are winning. After seven months I have two trophies with this club,’ said Ibrahimovic, who famously turned down the chance to join Arsenal as a youngster after refusing to take part in a trial.
‘There are other clubs that didn’t win for 10 years. I’ve won what they won in 10 years, so I’m happy with that.’
Manchester United’s victory means they are now the most successful club in England, having claimed their 42nd major honour and moving ahead of arch rivals Liverpool.
