Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic makes Champions League claim

Ibrahimovic, who has been recovering from a knee injury, rejoined United on a one-year deal over the summer.

The 36-year-old has lifted pretty much every major honour available in the game, however Europe’s elite competition still eludes him.

Ibrahimovic is expected to return to action in the New Year and it is likely United will still be involved in the Champions League then.

The Swede got his hands on a Europa League winners’ medal for the Red Devils last term, and while not obsessed with lifting the trophy, he admits it would be fantastic to get his hands on the biggest prize in club football.

“Of course, winning the Champions League would be massive, huge,” Ibrahimovic told Sky Sports

“That is one of the targets, every season. But in the whole picture, if I could change one Champions League for my whole other 33 trophies, no. 

“The way I see it is in the long term, what you achieved in the long term. 

“I see many players who have won one Champions League and then nothing.

“Then you can say it in a different way – he won it because of luck, or because the team was good, but I have been winning every year. 

“Wherever I’ve [gone] I have won. I didn’t win the Champions League, which everybody knows, but I’m doing everything to win it. And if I could, I would be on top of the world.”

United meanwhile, host Tottenham tomorrow at Old Trafford (12.30pm).
