A Cobblers player has claimed Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic “talked like the Terminator” during the EFL Cup clash at Sixfields.
Northampton Town centre-back Gabriel Zakuani was charged with marking the Swedish superstar on Tuesday night and has revealed he was a huge influence on the Man Utd team.
Talking to the BBC World Service, Zakuani said: “He talks a lot on the pitch, but he talks a bit like a robot, kind of like Terminator.
“It’s sort of in slow motion. You can see his influence on their team. He’ll tell a few of the players that are rushing past him to just calm down and relax on the ball.
“You can see straight away that he has the respect of everyone at the club.”
The Cobblers were beaten 3-1 on the night, with Man Utd scoring two goals after they bought on Ibrahimovic in the 55th minute.
