Thanks to Juan Mata, we have a new nugget of Zlatan gold to add to the extensive collection.

The likeable Spaniard told FourFourTwo the story of Zlatan's first day at Man United.

"The day he arrived, we were away on pre-season," Mata said.

"So he was on his own with the kit men at the training ground.

"They had never met him before and he's the sort of guy that garners instant respect because of the way he carries himself.

"Zlatan apparently looked the kit men up and down and said: 'I hope you know God has arrived'.

"The kit men were shaking and didn't know what to think, then he fell about laughing with them. He always does that."

Sounds about right.

Zlatan's tongue-in-cheek egomaniac routine is something only he could get away with in the modern age.

He has the record and ability to back up his chat.

Plus, his new found self-awareness and willing to poke fun at himself have endeared him further to the football-loving masses...

If Zlatan is offside, you’re on the wrong side.
