Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic was mobbed by a look-a-like pitch invader following Juan Mata’s second goal during United’s 4-1 demolition of Premier League champions Leicester City at Old Trafford.
Mata’s first-half strike against the Foxes set the tone for a great United performance but it was Ibrahimovic who was the subject of one particular fan’s interest with the Swedish striker exchanging words with the lookalike before jokingly palming him off.
The impersonator was quickly escorted from the field by Old Trafford security but he did seem to provide Ibrahimovic with a quiet chuckle during a day full of smiles for United.
The lookalike donned a similar mustache to the former PSG forward and even sported Ibrahimovic’s patented ponytail.
Ibrahimovic was held scoreless on the day but was aided by his goalscoring team-mates with Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba all getting on the scoresheet to ensure United cruised to a comfortable home win.
