It only took 4 minutes for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to open his Manchester United account, with an scissor kick to open the scoring in United’s 5-2 win over Galatasaray.
It was the perfect scenario as United travelled to Ibrahimovic’s Sweden to face the Turkish side and in his first start for his new club he bagged almost instantly.
A cross from the right wing from Antonio Valencia was met by Ibrahimovic, and whilst the 6’5 Swede didn’t make full contact with the ball, it still found it’s way past Galatasaray keeper Fernando Muslera.
Cue the United fans and everyone else going nuts.
Galatasaray came back and made it 2-1 but United restored teir lead after the interval with a brace from Rooney, a header from Fellaini and an impressive goal from Juan Mata following some great link up play between him and Michael Carrick.

That didn't take long. Valencia cross, Ibrahimovic scissor kick into the net. About five minutes into his debut. Not a bad start.

That overhead kick should do wonders for the very fragile ego of Zlatan Ibrahimović. Slowly but surely.
