Roy Keane: Zlatan Ibrahimovic a good fit for Manchester United

Manchester United's pursuit of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has received backing from Roy Keane, who likened the Sweden international to Eric Cantona.

Ibrahimovic is expected to move to Old Trafford on a one-year contract and former United captain Keane believes he has the right character and temperament to prove a big success for the 13-time Premier League champions.

Keane said: "Of course he's a good fit for United, he's a good player. Is he like Eric Cantona? They're big characters, clearly, whatever you say about Cantona he was a popular lad, and I get the impression Zlatan is the same.

"Whatever you hear about his playing career, you hear from his teammates and he seems to be a bit of a character, and you can see that in the way he plays.

"It's good to see that, because there's a lack of characters out there, and he certainly is that. On top of all that, he's a very, very good player. To compare him to Eric, he's a little different, but he's a very good player.

"People talk about Ibrahimovic having a bit of temper like that's a bad thing... it depends how you use it. I'm still learning, but then again I don't have one."
