The Swedish and Man United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is now 35, broke the deadlock in the 30th minute with a powerful finish into the bottom corner.

Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Sunderland on Sunday was his 250th goal he scored as he turned 30years.

Speaking about the success and how he is able to keep going, Ibrahimovic said: “I train hard, I keep focusing.

“I believe in what I do, I believe in myself and I know what I am able to do and I’m not worried I just play my game and try to enjoy.

“It seems the older I get the more intelligent I get, of course I can’t move the same as 10 years ago or 5 years ago.

“But the older you get the more experienced and intelligent you get.

“You don’t waste so much energy on things you don’t need.

“My game is improving, I’m getting better and better, I feel like Benjamin Button, I was born old and I will die young.”

Henrikh Mkhitaryan made it 2-0 very early in the second half, before Ibrahimovic set up Marcus Rashford for the last goal.
