Zlatan Ibrahimovic has come up with one of his killer one-liners after Thierry Henry asked him why his portrait was not appearing on the walls of United’s Carrington training base.

Ibrahimvovic took part in an interview with for Sky Sports that saw him outline his vision for his United comeback, as he closes in on a return to action after a long-term knee injury.

Henry and Ibrahimovic shared plenty of jokes during their time together in Manchester, before the Swedish striker stole the show when Henry asked him why his image was not already appearing alongside the likes of George Best, Bobby Chartlon, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roy Keane and David Beckham.

Ibrahimovic was quick to respond, with the superstar who has never been short of confidence quick to offer a reply that was clearly loaded with comedy value.

“It’s coming next year, my picture,” he declared. “You know, its because they still don’t know how God is looking!”

Henry and Ibrahimovic are then seen laughing in unison, with the United striker doubtless keen to invite the Arsenal legend back to Carrington a year from now if his prediction becomes a reality.
