Henrikh Mkhitaryan: This Man United player is incredible

Henrikh Mkhitaryan heaps praise on Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the strong impact he has had at Manchester United

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has admitted that he has been extremely impressed by what he has seen from Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Manchester United this season.

The Swedish striker has been in fine form for the Red Devils since his arrival at the club from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the summer.

There had been some doubts about Ibrahimovic’s ability to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League at the age of 35.

However, the veteran forward has proved his doubters wrong by scoring 12 goals in the Premier League in the first half of the season.

Ibrahimovic continued his fine form by scoring one and setting up two in Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Sunderland on Boxing Day.

And fellow summer signing Mkhitaryan has been extremely impressed by the performances Ibrahimovic has produced since his arrival at the club.

Speaking to Manchester United’s website after the victory, Mkhitaryan said: “His performance doesn’t show how old he is.

“He’s doing some incredible stuff and I’m very happy for him because he deserves it.

“He’s a very big player and everyone knows him. I don’t have to say it because everyone knows he’s a fantastic player.

“I hope he will do his best for the next game as well.”
