Man Utd ace Ibrahimovic: The derby? I'm ready, confident

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has assured he'll be up for the derby with Manchester City.

Saturday's eagerly-anticipated clash between Manchester United and Manchester City will see hostilities renewed between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, as well as the striker and his former boss.

"For me, the big games are the ones that trigger you," the well-travelled Swede told MUTV. "They're the games everyone speaks about.

"I have played in many derby games, I've played in El Clasico, the Inter-Milan derby, Ajax and Feyenoord, which was the big one there, and PSG-Marseille.

"I have played in all of them, the only one I missed was this one.

"This is coming on Saturday and I am very well prepared, confident and focused, and there is a lot of hard work behind that.

"We are prepared and we are ready. We just wait for the game now."
