London: Manchester United's striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic's form is "unbelievable", according to English football club great Ryan Giggs.


Ibrahimovic, 35, has scored 24 goals with Sunday's winner in the FA Cup tie at Blackburn in the FA Cup being his latest. Giggs said he can understand the comparisons to his former United teammate Eric Cantona. "I think there's similarities because of that confidence they have in their own ability and the goals that they have scored," Giggs said.

"It didn't faze Eric or Ibrahimovic coming to United and being the No. 1 player. Even when they are getting all the adoration, they don't get carried away.

"He is fit and at his age to play and to produce the goals he is producing is unbelievable. It is not easy playing into your 30s)," Giggs said.
