Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired from Manchester United.
Now Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw the whole club.
– They talk too much about the past, says “Ibra”.
This weekend’s big loss against newcomer Watford caused the cup to overflow and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to leave his post the next morning. It has already been clear that Ed Woodward, vice chairman of Manchester United, will leave the club at the turn of the year.
“Must clean the skull”
Two people who have a great history within Manchester United – and maybe just what is needed for the club to take the next step. At least if you interpret Zlatan Ibrahimovic who says that the club lives too much on old merits.
– They talk too much about the past. When I was there, I said I wanted to focus on the present and write my own story, says the Swedish superstar to The Guardian.
“Ibra” thinks that the mentality affects the club involved, in a negative way.
– When you hear too much about it, it becomes like a loop in your head. You will think about it all the time or go to a hospital and clear your head, he says.
But Ibrahimovic’s time at Manchester United was relatively successful. The Swede won several titles, the League Cup and the Europa League, during his debut season 2016/17, but not those who weigh the most.
Saws Premier League
– But it was a good experience to play for Manchester United. It’s a great club.
Before the Swede’s move to England, it has been a recurring theme in the media that Zlatan Ibrahimovic does not dare to come to the Premier League, and that he does not perform against English opposition in the European tournaments.
Criticism “Ibra” always turned away – and now he saw the quality of the league.
– The quality (in the Premier League) is overrated, technically. But the league has other qualities and above all the speed. You can be the best player in the world, but if you do not have the speed, it will be tough.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic belonged to Manchester United between the years 2016 to 2018. The Swede suffered a serious knee injury in the spring of his first season, which kept him away from games for over six months.
