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.”
