Arsenal legend: Why I’ve been disappointed with Man United signing

Ian Wright says Zlatan Ibrahimovic is only starting to find his best form at Manchester United

Ian Wright admits he hasn’t been blown away by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s start to life at Manchester United.

The former Sweden international scored a late winner at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night as the 35-year-old centre-forward managed to seal three points for the 20-time English champions in the capital.

Ibrahimovic has scored nine times in 15 Premier League appearances in the 2016-17 season so far after the veteran striker moved to Manchester United in a free transfer from Ligue 1 holders Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

The ex AC Milan and Barcelona striker has scored a credible 14 goals in all competitions since his switch to Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho in July.

Former Arsenal striker Wright has explained why he has been disappointed with Ibrahimovic’s start to life at Manchester United even if the experienced striker has started to find some form in recent weeks.

“We’re starting to see from nice play from Zlatan,” Wright told The Sun Goals podcast.

“It’s not like he has pulled trees up here. He’s pulled up trees in respect of goals but I just thought I’d see more skills and amazing stuff.

“I’m not knocking him. He has got used to it now and he knows what he is up against in the Premier League. We’re just starting to see the great stuff.”

Manchester United are in sixth place in the Premier League table and six points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.
