Zlatan Ibrahimovic Says He Will Return To Manchester United If They Need Him
LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made a sensational ‘come and get me plea’ to former club Manchester United.
The 37-year-old believes he could “easily” still play in the Premier League after his previous spell at Old Trafford, where he scored 17 goals in 33 appearances.
He also confirmed that if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs him, he “is here.”
In the above interview, Ibrahimovic states he is concentrating on the project at LA Galaxy but didn’t rule out a potential move to his former side.
“The Lion still roars, yes. I could still play easily in the Premier League.” he said.
“If United need me, I’m here. But right now Galaxy have me and that’s what I’m concentrating on.
“I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it. I have 33 trophies that I brought with me and hopefully I can win something here and then we will see where I finish.”
Ibrahimovic stormed the Premier League when he joined the Jose Mourinho regime, scoring a remarkable 28 goals in 46 games in his first year.
However, towards the end of the 2016/17 season, the Swede picked up a serious knee injury in a Europa League quarter-final match against Anderlecht.
While he was trying to regain his fitness, the veteran striker refused to accept any wages from the club.
The veteran forward was eventually released by the club on amicable terms but was soon re-signed for the second half of the 2017/2018 season.
The former AC Milan and Barcelona striker clearly has a soft spot for his former club and in the interview, he spoke about United’s recent 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.
He also mentioned “giving advice” to ex-teammate Paul Pogba.
“I look, I look, I look,” he said. “I saw the last game and I think they were unlucky. If they score the penalty, it’s a different game but a game in England is not finished until its finished.
“Anything can happen, especially in the last minutes where everything is in the heat of the moment.
“I also speak with him [Pogba]. A lot of advice I give – but nothing I share with you!”
Would you like to see Zlatan in the Premier League again? Do you think he would be a success at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?
