Manchester United Football Club made a huge decision over the summer, when bringing in Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer after his contract ran out at Paris Saint-Germain. The 35-year-old forward has been an absolute revelation at the Theatre of Dreams, and the fans absolutely love their new forward.
So far, the Swede has found the back of the net an impressive nineteen times across all competitions, and now a former Manchester United player has had his say on exactly why he is so good. That man is Wes Brown, who won countless titles at Old Trafford during his time here.
“He wants to be the best at everything he does,” Wes Brown told Sky Sports News.
“And I think he is proving it at the moment with how he is playing and the goals he is scoring.”
“You can see it running throughout the team.”
“He’s been doing it throughout his career and he’s not going to stop now, he’ll stop when he cannot do it. “
“He wants to be the best and he is proving it at the moment and a new deal wouldn’t surprise anyone at the moment.”
At the end of the day, I think everyone knew just how good Ibrahimovic was, but the question remained about whether he could adapt to the physicality of the Premier League.
Let’s be honest, everyone questioned his age when the deal was announced (myself included), but he has performed so brilliantly since he got here. That’s purely down to his desire to be a born winner which is what Wes Brown highlights in that video.
The former United centre-back even hints at a new deal for Ibrahimovic wouldn’t surprise anyone at this moment in time, and you have to say he is exactly right. I’d personally love for him to put pen to paper on a new contract – purely because he brings so much to the team.
