Manchester United fans are buzzing right now, Old Trafford is absolutely thumping again on match days and thanks to the new bliss usheered in by the Jose Mourinho era, premier league fans have the opportunity of seeing the best of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Sweden football legend have dominated leagues in France, Spain, Netherlands and Italy but there were fresh doubts whether at 34, he can produce in England which is considered the toughest league in the world.
But after just two matches in the prestigious premier league the name on the lips of every fans and pundits is #ZlatanTime following his ferorcious impact for the Red Devils and already tipped to get 20 league goals or more this season.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic kept everyone in suspense of where his next move will be after he ended his four-year spell with Paris Saint German but following Sweden’s elimination from the Euro 2016, he announced that he has agreed to joined Manchester United.
He entered England with a huge reputation of a guy that has conquered major leagues across Europe but many still questioned his age and ability to perform at the highest level.
Ibrahimovic missed Manchester United’s tour of Asian after he was given extended break following the European Championship where he represented Sweden.
He wore the Red Devils shirt for the first time in a pre-season friendly against Galatasaray and he did not disappoint as he scored a trademark Zlatan goal when he connected Antonio Valencia’s cross with a superb bicycle kick and United romped to a comprehensive 5-2 win.
The 34-year-old did not stop there as he carried that form into the annual curtain-raiser in England – the Community Shield where he scored the winner to hand Manchester United a 2-1 win against Ahmed Musa’s Leicester City who are the current premier league champions.
That goal got the fans behind the big Swede and he looked like he has been playing for United since ten years. He joked around and blended easily with fellow new arrivals Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
However, on the pitch he was a Lion and showed his prowess in his first official premier league match against Bournemouth where he scored from 30yards to help Jose Mourinho’s men to a sumptuous 3-1 away win.
He continued in that vein when he made his Old Trafford debut in the premier league as he marked it with two lovely goals – first he headed in a superb cross from Wayne Rooney, then carefully slotted in a penalty to seal a 2-0 win against Southampton.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic as revealed by Jose Mourinho is set to stay for another year at the club after the one year he initially signed which is massive news for the club who are desperate to reclaim their lost glory.
The Sweden legend has scored three goals in two premier league appearances and more are expected to follow. Will Zlatan goals be enough to win the league for Manchester United in his first season?
Ibrahimovic sure fits the bill at Old Trafford and if he can reach between 20-25 goals this season in the difficult premier league then Jose Mourinho and the Mancunians will be celebrating their first domestic title in four years apart from winning the FA Cup last season.
