Manchester United fans react to abject Ibrahimovic display against Anderlecht

Football is a funny old game. It wasn’t that long ago when Zlatan Ibrahimovic was being lauded as Manchester United’s new hero. However, against RSC Anderlecht it is fair to say he had an off-night in the Europa League, and everything that he tried just didn’t come off.

In the dying embers of the game, Ibrahimovic was subbed off with a nasty looking knee injury which kind of summed up his evening. It was a real shame and at first glance, it certainly looks like it could be a serious one.

Anyway, back to his performance as a whole this evening. At times this season, he has defied the odds with some outstanding performances, but he definitely looked every bit a 35-year-old. Whether that’s the long and hard season catching up on him remains to be seen.

He gave the ball away far too easily. He missed golden opportunities and his usually excellent link-up play wasn’t there either.

Now, the Manchester United faithful have taken to social media to give their opinion on the performance of the Swede, and it’s fair to say he is coming in for plenty of stick. Most of it, I agree with unfortunately.
