Watford boss Mazzarri: Ibrahimovic eternal and immortal

Watford boss Walter Mazzarri has spoken of his admiration for Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The pair crossed swords many times during their time in Serie A.

And ahead of Sunday's clash, Mazzarri stated: "Ibrahimovic is the type of player I call the eternal and immortal.

"I have (coached) against him many times (in Serie A), he can make the difference on the pitch.

"We will try as we always do with great players but I would also add that it is very important to remember that Manchester United is not only about Ibrahimovic."
