Ibrahimovic backs up 'fine wine' claims with Premier League haul

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has famously likened himself to a fine wine that gets better with age, and it is hard to argue against the Manchester United striker's claim.

The outspoken Swede is older than Teddy Sheringham was when he racked up 15 for United in the 2000-01 campaign.

He will certainly back himself to do that.
