Zlatan: I know how to kick someone in the head

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says Seamus Coleman would have left the field unconscious if he had kicked him deliberately on Sunday.

The Swedish striker ended up in a heap on top of Coleman following a challenge on the Everton defender but insisted it was an accident after he being accused of foul play in the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

Ibrahimovic had opened the scoring with a lobbed effort at the end of the first half before Leighton Baines netted a late equaliser from the penalty spot.

After the game, Ibrahimovic told MUTV: "It was a physical game. They played hard.

"I heard one of the commentators say I kicked someone in the head on purpose, but it was a 50-50 duel and he pulled me down.

"Trust me, if I want to kick someone in the head, I know how to kick someone in the head and make him fall asleep. That is the only thing I have to say."

Reflecting on his goal, the striker added: "I got a fantastic ball from (Anthony) Martial, and I saw the goalkeeper coming out, so I tried to time it right.

"I scored today but it only gave us one point. I would prefer to win and not to score, that is my way of thinking."
