Zlatan Ibrahimovic heaps praise on Manchester United's fans for their support this season
Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he and his Manchester United team-mates are being spoiled by their fans’ incredible support this season.
Ibrahimovic hit the winner as Manchester United sealed a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night to make it back to back wins in the Premier League for the Red Devils.
United have come in for criticism for failing to turn their good performances into results this season following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.
However, Sweden striker Ibrahimovic feels that the Red Devils have been spoiled by the club’s fans’ amazing support through thick and thin this season.
Speaking to Manchester United’s website after Wednesday’s win, Ibrahimovic said: “The fans, they are fantastic. That is the minimum problem that we have. We are spoiled.
“We have a fantastic crowd, fantastic fans, they always back us up, always cheer for us in difficult moments and in good moments. We try to do our best.
“Those are the ones who give you motivation, adrenaline and the extra you want to give when you’re really tired or finished. They keep you going.”
Ibrahimovic will be expecting to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils play their final game before Christmas on Saturday with a trip to West Bromwich Albion.
The Red Devils are currently 13 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.
