Cape Town - New Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he has been shocked by the intensity of the English Premier League despite his stunning debut goal.

Ibrahimovic scored in The Red Devils 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality on Sunday which marked the first win of Jose Mourinho's tenure at the club and the Swede admitted that he's not settled just yet.

Despite admitting the shock of the intensity of English football, the 34-year-old conceded the result was all that mattered on the day.

"It was a difficult game," he told reporters after the game. "It's not easy. A new environment, new stadiums, clubs, team-mates. I just play my game.

"I tried to do my job and help my team. The first objective is to win, and the second is to score so that's good. For me, the victory is the most important thing and whoever scores, it is a bonus."
