Ibrahimovic: 'Get Pogba or I'll break your legs'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic jokingly told his agent he would "break his legs" if he allowed fellow client Paul Pogba to move anywhere other than Manchester United.

Mino Raiola, who represents both players, as well as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, oversaw the deals which took all three to United this summer.

"Zlatan told me, 'Do not transfer Pogba elsewhere or I will break your legs," Raiola told

Pogba has taken time to settle since returning to United but produced a much improved display against Leicester on Saturday, getting on the scoresheet in a 4-1 victory.

Prior to that game, Raiola made known his feelings that Jose Mourinho had not been playing Pogba in his favourite position - on the left-hand side of an attacking trio.

"Pogba still has to find his place in the team," said Raiola.

"My preferred position for him is left attacking midfielder. With his power, stamina and technique... Pogba would be unplayable in that role. But Mourinho takes the decisions."

Huge waves crash into lifeboat during Blackpool rescue

This dramatic footage shows the rescue efforts of Blackpool RNLI after three men went into the water at North Pier.

Huge waves can be seen crashing into their lifeboat as they search for the men. One man managed to escape from the water unaided but the other two were found clinging to the seawall at around 7.30pm yesterday.

The men were helped to safety after a joint rescue effort from RNLI Fleetwood, RNLI Lytham, Lytham Coastguard, Fleetwood Coastguard, police, fire service, ambulance service and the coastguard rescue helicopter.

"The outcome could have been very serious indeed had it not been for the quick thinking of staff on North Pier who threw them a life ring and phoned the Coastguard."
