Spain's former monarch Juan Carlos I met football royalty in Zlatan Ibrahimovic - much to the delight of the Manchester United striker.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was in typically unabashed mood when the self-proclaimed football "king" met a real former monarch.

The Manchester United striker posted on his official Instagram page after meeting Juan Carlos I, who ruled Spain from 1975 until he stepped down in 2014.

The 79-year-old, who was a guest at Manchester City's Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday, was pictured smiling alongside Ibrahimovic, who captioned the photo "a King recognizes a King".

Ibrahimovic missed United's 3-1 win over Middlesbrough due to suspension and will not be available to return until the game against Everton at Old Trafford on April 4.
