The 35-year-old legend - who played for Manchester United last season before suffering a serious knee injury - has used his time away from the soccer field to create his own arcade title, called 'Zlatan Legends'.

Zlatan explained: "I was not interested in just releasing another football game onto the market - it's important that the game felt unique and was built from scratch.

"We wanted to offer something for everyone, but at the same time ensure it was complex enough to test the skill of even the most hardcore gamer."

The record-breaking goalscorer admitted he was "proud" to be associated with the new title, which is sure to benefit from his profile around the world.

Away from his new video game, Zlatan could make a shock return to Manchester United in the coming months, according to the club's coach Jose Mourinho.

The outspoken Portuguese revealed the striker could resign for the Old Trafford club once he recovers from his knee injury.

He recently explained: "There was a space of time for everybody to think, to feel, to decide and from his point of view he made the decision of wanting to play football still at the highest level, didn't want to hide behind such an amazing injury.

"It would be easy for him to hide behind it and to say 'it's time stop and go to a different level of football'. He did not want that."
