Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has spoken of his delight at winning the EFL Cup, saying he “came to win and I’m winning.”
Ibrahimovic, 35, scored twice in United’s 3-2 win over Southampton at Wembley, the second being the 87th-minute winner.
He also left the national stadium with a medal in August after scoring the decisive goal in the Community Shield against Leicester.
“It feels good and I feel good. Winning trophies is always amazing but especially when you play at Wembley,” Ibrahimovic told United’s official website. “A great atmosphere, 85,000 people… it’s not every week you play a final and you win it.
“This is the second time we are here, and the second trophy I get here with this club, so I am super happy.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the man of the match in Manchester United’s victory.
“This is why I came. I came to win and I’m winning. This is what I said before I came, not like the other ones who use the situations when they win and they talk. I talk before and I do it, that’s the big difference.
“I think, with the manager, he’s used to winning. When you bring in a manager like this, you know what you get and, when you bring me, you know what you get.
“Every trophy is special, every trophy is important, this is what we play for. We don’t play for one trophy particularly, you have players that won one trophy — the World Cup, the Champions League… and then they didn’t win anything. You need to win every trophy you play for. That’s what I do.
“We have another three to play for. We work hard. We believe in what we are doing. Of course when you win a trophy, it gives you more confidence and the statistics speak for themselves — we could win five trophies, we have two and we have another three to play for. So let’s see what happens.”
