It’s not an easy affair to establish oneself at any single club, and it is harder still to try and excel at various destinations. However, that is precisely what Zlatan Ibrahimovic successfully achieved all across Europe.
Stints in Italy, Spain, France, and England all dotted the striker’s highly successful career, and he still continues to amaze at the age of 37 in the MLS.
His final reign in Europe came with Manchester United in the Premier League, where he scored 26 goals in his debut season to shush his critics. Of course, he’d have likely scored more and gifted the Red Devils the Europa League like he did with the EFL Cup, but a freak injury cut his tenure short.
It was also rumored to be an end to his career, but the brilliant Swede recovered in a fluid manner, and still has fond memories of his time in Manchester.
As per the Metro, the decorated striker reveals: “I’m super proud and super happy that I went to United — it was the right club. We won, and I did what I did before I got injured. I had an excellent time — great memories.
“I’m attached to United forever. The supporters are amazing: wherever I went, I saw red shirts, which was fantastic. It’s a very important moment in my career.”
He also adds in typical Zlatan fashion: “As I said when I was in England, you’re lucky I didn’t come 10 years ago, because if I did what I did at 35 years old, imagine it if I was 25. Then it would have been a different story.
“I came there and they said I came in a wheelchair. All the people that talked, in the whole Premier League, I put them in a wheelchair. That’s what I did.”
Supporters of the LA Galaxy are now treated to his antics week in and week out, and despite his age, Ibrahimovic simply shows no signs of stopping.
