Cape Town - Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made it known that he decided to re-sign for the Red Devils to win the Premier League title this season.

The Swede scored 28 goals in 46 games across all competitions last season, before suffering knee ligament damage in April which ended his campaign prematurely.

The 36-year-old feels now more motivated than ever to play for Jose Mourinho's side once again, as he aims to help their Premier League title challenge.

"I said I have come back to finish what I started," he told Sky Sports.

"Everything I built up in the first season - obviously we won the three trophies - the ending for me was not the ending I wanted, or nobody wanted, especially after how the season went.

"The target is the Premier League. That is my target to finish. Everything I started in the first season, we will finish in the second one."

When asked about people doubting his ability to come back from the injury, Ibra added: "The challenge was that I never had a major injury, and all these people talking that 'it's over' or 'he's too old', all these doubts that I had in my whole career.

"When that happens, it triggers me because it gives me energy and an objective. I'm challenging what I am able to do, how far I can take my body.

"I will walk out just as I came in, I will not walk out limping. I will walk out the way I want to walk out. Even if I have to walk on water I will do that also."
