Zlatan Ibrahimovic has predicted that he will begin his Manchester United career with a trophy when the team meet Leicester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday.

"I'm used to winning trophies; I didn't come here to waste time," said Ibrahimovic, who is in line to make his competitive debut for United after joining them on a free transfer from Paris St-Germain in July, having enjoyed a trophy-laden career to date.

The 34-year-old Swede plans to set the tone for what he hopes will be a successful spell at Old Trafford and help the FA Cup holders to get Jose Mourinho's reign off to a winning start against the Premier League champions.

"That is the first trophy we will bring home," he told Manchester United TV. "For me, every trophy is very serious.

"I have collected 30 trophies and I want to collect more of them. I'm not satisfied until I collect everything.

"I didn't come here to lose time," the former AC Milan striker continued. "I came here to win. I believe the philosophy is the same for the club, especially a club like this. They are made to win."

Last season, Ibrahimovic helped PSG to win a second successive domestic treble, winning Ligue 1, the French Cup and the French League Cup.
