Rooney And Ibrahimovic's Post-Match Interview Featured A Moment Of Silent Awkwardness

Rooney And Ibrahimovic's Post-Match Interview Featured A Moment Of Silent Awkwardness
By PJ Browne

Zlatan Ibrahimovic got his Manchester United career off to the kind of start expected of the Swede - he scored on his debut.

Man Utd beat Bournemouth 3-1 at Dean Court. Ibrahimovic scored his side's third of the game after Juan Mata had opened the scoring and Wayne Rooney added the second.

It was another debutant who got the Premier League Man of the Match award - Eric Bailly. The Ivorian was excellent playing at centre-back along with Daley Blind.

It was not Bailly - as you would usually expect of the Man of the Match - who turned out for the post-match interview on Sky Sports. Instead it was Ibrahimovic and Rooney.

When told it was Bailly rather than either of them who had won the award, there was a slightly awkward moment of silence they were asked to give it to their teammate.

As he walked away, Ibrahimovic declared the game to have been a 'team victory' rather than one owed to a single individual.
