Watch - Zlatan's spectacular League Cup final free kick produces a brilliant celebration from Alex Ferguson


He hasn't managed the team for almost four years but Sunday gave us another reminder that Alex Ferguson still lives and dies with the fortunes of Manchester United.

The retired sideline general is a regular attendee of United matches and was at Wembley Stadium last Sunday for the League Cup final against Southampton, where Jose Mourinho won the first major trophy of his Old Trafford reign.

Zlatan was the star man, as he has been throughout his inaugural season in English football, with the Swedish striker bagging a crucial brace to swing the game in the Red Devils' favour.

His late header decided the game, but his earlier free kick was easily the standout moment of an exciting affair.

It even got Ferguson straight out of his seat, with the ex-United boss passionately celebrating Zlatan's spectacular strike.

The Man United Twitter account captured the priceless moment, with Ferguson showing that he still loves the club he took over in 1986.
