GOTHENBURG, Sweden (AP) - Zlatan Ibrahimovic needed only 195 seconds on Saturday to score in his first game for Manchester United.

The 34-year-old Swedish forward met Antonio Valencia’s cross with an acrobatic scissor kick to score in the fourth minute against Turkish side Galatasaray - in front of a home crowd in Gothenburg.

Ibrahimovic, who was substituted at halftime of the pre-season friendly, joined the 20-time English champions at the start of July on a one-year deal with an option for an additional year.

Wayne Rooney got two goals for United - one from the penalty spot - and Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata also scored in United’s 5-2 victory.
