Thierry Henry makes claim about Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Man United
Thierry Henry is fully expecting to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic finish as the top scorer in the Premier League this season
Thierry Henry is backing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to finish as the top scorer in the Premier League this season.
The Swedish striker has been in fine form for Manchester United since his arrival on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer transfer window.
There had been questions about whether the 35-year-old forward would be able to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League during the latter stages of his career.
However, there have been no issues for the veteran forward, who has already scored 14 goals and made three assists in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho’s men.
And former Arsenal striker Henry – who played alongside Ibrahimovic at Barcelona – is tipping the Swede to finish as the top scorer in the Premier League this season.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Henry said: “I called Ibrahimovic at the beginning of the season and I’m not going to change. But you have guys on that list who are not taking penalties. What a race.”
Ibrahimovic is currently level with Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez with 14 Premier League goals this season in the race for the golden boot.
