Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has conquered England. We know this because Zlatan has said this. In a recent interview with the manutd.com, Ibrahimovic discussed his current form and stated that his domination of England took all of three months.
Ibrahimovic has always been one of the best soccer players in the world, and a self-promoter, but his current boast seems to be backed up by cold, hard facts. He has scored 12 goals in his last 12 appearances for United and was named Premier League player of the month for December.
However, Ibrahimovic says he is not interested in individual awards. His main goal is to win the Premier League title. He may just get his wish. Manchester United are on a nine-game winning streak in all competitions and are just three points away from the top four and 10 points off league-leaders Chelsea.
After a shaky start to the season that had pundits writing them off, United are peaking at the right time and Ibrahimovic is leading the way. With big games against Liverpool and Stoke City, United could make up a lot of ground and find themselves in the thick of the title hunt.
When asked if he would like to be the league’s leading scorer, Ibrahimovic stated that he is “not chasing anybody,” referring to league-leading scorer, Diego Costa of Chelse. Ibrahimovic has his eyes set on “the head trophy – the Premier League.”
If Manchester United, who are one of the best soccer teams, do make a run for the title it will be because of the all-around excellent play of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
