Manchester, July 18: Manchester United's heavyweight summer signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic has responded to club legend Eric Canto's claim of being the king of the former English Premier league (EPL) champions by saying he will be 'god' at Old Trafford.

Canto, who wore the Manchester United jersey from 1992-1997, welcomed the Swedish forward to the English powerhouse with a message saying the move is the best decision he has ever made.

"I have a persol message for Zlatan: You decided to go red. It is the best choice you ever made," Canto stated in his welcome message.

"When you walk into the Theatre of Dreams. When you can feel the ghosts of the legends that have been here before. When you score that first goal right in front of Stretford End. When you hear the crowd chanting your me. When your heart beats so strong that it bursts out of your chest. When you feel that you will love them as much as they will love you.

"You will know, my friend, that you filly made it home."

The Frenchman, one of the greatest players to grace Old Trafford with four EPL titles and two League and FA Cups during his fiver-year stint, asserted that there can be only one king in Manchester, himself, and offered Ibrahimovic the title of a prince. IANS
