Blomqvist joined United in 1998 just after club icon Cantona retired.
But the Swede can see similarities with Ibrahimovich and the Old Trafford hero.
Ibrahimovich said he would become the ‘God of Manchester’ after Cantona joked earlier this summer there would be only one ‘King’.
“He reminds me of Eric Cantona, the aura he has, how he carries himself,” Blomqvist said.
“He really shows everyone that he is a winner and that he is convinced that everything will be alright. He is just as cool, calm and confident as Cantona.
