Helping Manchester United lift the trophy after a somewhat fortuitous 3-2 win over Southampton thanks to a late Zlatan Ibrahimovic victor, the Ivory Coast worldwide gave a quick interview to SFR Sport after the game about the previous 90 minutes and what it was like playing with the big Swede.
He has already scored 26 goals in all competitions this season, and it's scary to think of where United might be without him.
In accordance with his current short-term contract, Ibrahimovic has the option to stay at Old Trafford for one more season. They didn't deserve to lose in 90 minutes.
Speaking about his terrific critic-doubting campaign, Ibra said: "I know I look good". But it is all down to him.
It wasn't his intention to come to England in the first place but he obliged to the requests made by Mourinho and his two kids. The striker's age had caused some to question how effective he would be but the 35-year-old said: "I'm an animal". Rooney reaffirmed his future to United last week, rather than moving to China before its deadline-day on Tuesday, but it is a commitment from Ibrahimovic that the club is keener to hear. I was very sad but I did nothing to try stop him from going. I said that sooner or later, the goals will come and I think we were very, very clinical on Sunday. Winning is always special and today I don't get emotional when I win. You appreciate it more, the older you get. I have an objective every season I go into. I'm happy I came. This is what I predicted. I'm hungry to do more.
"They [kids] are satisfied with what I am doing".
"The fuel was in their legs, not ours", Mourinho said. We have another two months of the season to go.
Ibrahimovic said: "It was very nice because we were winning 2-0, they came up to 2-2 and we looked a bit exhausted, but I got the opportunity and I scored. When you bring in a manager like this, you know what you get and, when you bring me, you know what you get".
"I put a lot of pressure on myself; you put a lot of pressure on myself. I hope we can continue on this level".
Even United manager Jose Mourinho admitted Southampton deserved to force extra time.
"It's a bit unfair for them".
"We're now concentrated on the next cup".
Puel was proud of his players but upset at the disallowing of what would have been Gabbiadini's first goal.
