5 things we learned from Manchester United v Southampton
Feb 27 2017
Manchester United supporters should camp outside Zlatan Ibrahimovic's house to make sure he signs a contract extension at the club, manager Jose Mourinho said after the Swede's deadly double decided the League Cup final on Sunday.
"I predicted things and what I predicted is what I'm doing now and what I will still continue to do".
But it was 35-year-old Ibrahimovic who snatched the trophy from Southampton's grasp and sealed United's fifth League Cup victory after heading home the victor from Ander Herrera's cross in the 87th minute.
JESSE LINGARD loves playing at Wembley - and he's not shy in admitting it. "We will all believe he is going to stay here for us one more season".
Ibrahimovic's first goal in the first final of the season came in the 18th minute, direct from a free kick.
"I think if it went to extra-time we would have been in trouble".
"The man here made the difference", Paul Pogba, the world's most expensive player, said next to Ibrahimovic on the field.
"I came, that's special". He's passed the test, becoming a trophy victor in a fifth country after honors in France (Paris Saint-Germain), Italy (Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan), Spain (Barcelona) and the Netherlands (Ajax). He has a soft spot for the League Cup though. They desperately need a return to the Champions League, in which they finished third in a group containing Wolfsburg, PSV Eindhoven and CSKA Moscow last season under Van Gaal. United is now sixth, two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.
