Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Why I’m not worried about Man United goal drought
The Manchester United striker reminds his critics that he has scored more than 450 goals during his career
Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he isn’t worried about his lack of goals for Manchester United in recent months.
The 35-year-old centre-forward ended a six-game goal drought with a first-half double in the Red Devils’ 3-1 win against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium before the international break.
Ibrahimovic missed Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with bitter rivals Arsenal at Old Trafford in the Premier League last weekend as the forward served a one-game suspension.
The Swedish striker scored one goal in 11 appearances in all competitions after his consolation strike in a 2-1 loss to Manchester City in the derby in September.
However, Ibrahimovic is relaxed about his goal record in a Manchester United shirt ahead of the visit of West Ham United at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
“Nah I’m not worried about the goals; I would be worried if I don’t create the chances or if I don’t have the chances because that is the moment you feel like you’re not able to do what you’re used to but the goals will come,” said Ibrahimovic, who was speaking exclusively to BT Sport.
“I have more than 450 goals in my career so that is the last thing I’m worried about.”
Manchester United are sixth place in the Premier League table but nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea after 12 games.
The Red Devils will host Slaven Bilic’s struggling West Ham United side in their next Premier League game at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
