Zlatan Ibrahimovic sets Man Utd social media record

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has set a new record at Manchester United – this time on social media.

United’s photo of the Swede holding aloft his Reds shirt has earned over half a million ‘likes’ since it was posted on 1 July, which was the day he signed his contract at the Aon Training Complex.

Four entries involving Ibra are now among United’s six most popular Instagram posts. Furthermore, nine of a much-changed top 10 all include new recruits in the form of Zlatan, manager Jose Mourinho and the club’s latest signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Topping the Instagram chart is not the first benchmark Zlatan has set during his short time with the Reds, after he broke the club’s power record during his medical earlier this month.
