AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic: Man Utd live in the past

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has taken aim at former club Manchester United.

For Ibrahimovic, United "talk too much" about past glories and they will not restore success by dining out on trophies from yesteryear.

He told the Guardian: "They talk too much about the past. When I went there I said: 'I'm here to focus on the present and to make my own story.'

"But when you have too much it becomes like a loop.

"You have to think about the present or you should go to a hospital and clean your head."

On playing in England, he added: "The quality is overrated in a technical way. But the Premier League has different qualities – the pace, the rhythm.

"You can be the best player in the world but if you cannot handle that pace and rhythm [you won't succeed].

"In Spain, France, Italy, the technique is better. That's why there are so many foreigners in the Premier League. They bring the technical [aspect]."
