Manchester United’s Premier League campaign hasn’t been great so far. The Reds currently sit in sixth place, with a large portion of their games resulting in needlessly dropped points – particularly at Old Trafford. Mourinho’s men dropped another two crucial points, this time away at Goodison Park.
As the game wore on, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was accused of purposely booting Seamus Coleman in the head following a collision, that led to Goal debating as to whether the 6’5 Swede could face retrospective action, and possibly a ban.
Now, the 35-year-old from Malmo has had his say on the situation, and in typical Zlatan style, he has come out with another priceless quote.
“It was a physical game. They played hard. I heard one of the commentators say I kicked someone in the head on purpose, but it was a 50-50 duel and he pulled me down.” Zlatan Ibrahimovic reportedly told MUTV, quoted by Sky Sports News.
“Trust me, if I want to kick someone in the head, I know how to kick someone in the head and make him fall asleep. That is the only thing I have to say.”
This is just classic Zlatan, and it’s brilliant. As a Manchester United fan, you cannot help but love him. He’s endeared himself to the Old Trafford crowd already, largely thanks to his play and all-round quality on the field.
Just take a look at how good that goal was against Everton. Not many players in world football would even think about taking that shot on – never mind having the ability to find the back of the net relatively easily.
As we approach the hectic winter period, Ibrahimovic has twelve Manchester United goals to his name, which isn’t bad for a man who came in on a free transfer at the latter stages of his career…
