Manchester United fans react to Zlatan Ibrahimovic display against Bournemouth

Football is a funny old game. Last weekend we were loving life after a late EFL Cup final winner, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic taking all the plaudits. Things feel very different today, with the influential Swede at the heart of controversy as Manchester United dropped another two points at home.
