Zlatan responds to allegations he kicked Seamus Coleman in the head with a classic Zlatanism

Updated: 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn't like most football players.

So when the Manchester United striker was accused of deliberately kicking Everton's Seamus Coleman in the head, he didn't just apologise or say it was accidental.

Oh no. He said this: "Trust me, if I want to kick someone in the head, I know how to kick someone in the head and make him fall asleep. That is the only thing I have to say."

Basically: if I'd meant to kick him, he'd know about it. Probably not the response the MUTV reporter was expecting.

Just Zlatan being Zlatan, isn't it?
