Manchester United's "arrogant" Zlatan Ibrahimovic is easily wound up claims Watford defender

Swedish superstar "gets annoyed" quickly and "really doesn’t like being touched" says Miguel Britos, who has played against him before in the Italian league.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been described as arrogant and easy to wind up by Watford defender Miguel Britos.

The Uruguayan came out on top against the Manchester United superstar and team-mate Wayne Rooney last weekend.

Watford ran out 3-1 winners to leave Jose Mourinho under pressure and Ibrahimovic fuming.

Former Napoli defender Britos said: “It wasn’t the first time I played against him, I did so when he was at Inter and AC Milan.

“We [Watford] were able to control him - as well as Rooney.

“He’s a bit arrogant and gets annoyed easily. He really doesn’t like being touched.
"Beyond that, he’s still a phenomenon. He is a complete player and he is also very big and hard to defend.”

United entertain champions Leicester on Saturday lunchtime while Watford go to Burnley on Monday.

Britos believes that despite Mourinho’s difficult start to the season his return —together with the arrival of Pep Guardiola across town at Manchester City — is “one more plus” for the Premier League.
