Man Utd striker Ibrahimovic matches Ronaldo record

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now scored as many club hat-tricks as Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo managed just a single treble during a Premier League match against Newcastle in 2008, reports the Daily Express.

That was in his fifth season at Old Trafford - but Ibrahimovic has managed it in his first.

The 35-year-old achieved the feat during United's 3-0 Europa League last-32 win over Saint-Etienne last night.

It also brought his tally for the season up to 23.
