WATCH: Throwback to Ibrahimovic's kung-fu kick on Saint-Etienne 'keeper

The 35-year-old forward will again line up against the Ligue 1 club in the Europa League, although he'll be hoping he doesn't get on the wrong side of the referee this time around.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic most certainly has history when it comes to facing Saint-Etienne.

Manchester United were paired with the Ligue 1 club in the Europa League last 32 following Monday's draw in Nyon, with Ibrahimovic having faced the French side on 14 previous occasions.

Indeed, the Swedish striker, who joined United on a free transfer from PSG in the summer, has an incredible goal record against Christophe Galtier's men, scoring 13 times.

That's the most goals he's managed against a single opponent in his entire career, although he won't remember Saint-Etienne for entirely positive reasons.

During a Ligue 1 game back in 2012, Ibrahimovic was shown a straight red card for a dangerous high boot on goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier.

The video above demonstrates just how bad a challenge it was from Ibrahimovic, who could have few complaints given how high his foot was, as well as the power of the impact.

The 35-year-old will be hoping to stay on the right side of the law when he meets the French club again in February, as United aim to reach the last 16 of Europe's secondary competition.
