Zlatan Ibrahimovic targeting Premier League title for career swansong

2

Swedish journeyman Zlatan Ibrahimovic is hoping to win the English Premier League with Manchester United when he returns from injury.

The 36-year-old has been on the sidelines since a potentially career-threatening cruciate ligament injury in April, but has already confirmed his plans for a return, possibly as early as Christmas.

“I said I will come back to finish what I started…the ending for me was not the ending I wanted, or nobody wanted, especially after how the season went,” said Ibrahimovic.

With 33 career trophies to his name, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the most decorated active footballer in the world.

While Jose Mourinho’s first season as Red Devils boss returned some underwhelming results in the Premier League, where they finished 6th, Manchester United found success elsewhere – winning the Community Shield, League Cup and UEFA Europa League.

“The target is the Premier League,” revealed the former Paris Saint-Germain man, who continued, “That is my target to finish. So, everything that I started from the first season, we will finish it in the second one.”

Trophies have followed Zlatan Ibrahimovic throughout his career, be it individual or club honours, having won league titles in Holland, Italy, Spain and France.

However, with Manchester United back amongst the elite of Europe in the UEFA Champions League, one must wonder whether he holds a quiet ambition over clinching the one title that has eluded him during his glorious career.

  1. he will have to wait at least till the next year for his dream to come true, and tbh, before he joined united, he was one of my favorite players, after that, I don’t respect him no more.
