Zlatan Ibrahimovic criticises Man United star after Hull draw
Zlatan Ibrahimovic appeared to hit out at Juan Mata after Manchester United's goalless draw with Hull
Zlatan Ibrahimovic accused Juan Mata of “bad finishing” after Manchester United’s goalless draw with Hull City in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils endured a frustrating evening as they were forced to settle for a point against the Tigers at Old Trafford on their way to their third Premier League draw in a row.
The result left Jose Mourinho’s men a staggering 14 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea and with it all to do in the race for Champions League qualification.
Mourinho’s side are currently in sixth place in the table as they bid to secure their place in Europe’s elite club competition during his first campaign at the club.
Manchester United struggled to break down a resilient Hull City side at Old Trafford and Ibrahimovic was less than impress with some if his side’s finishing, and was particularly critical of Mata.
Ibrahimovic was quoted as saying by The Daily Star after the game: “We are very disappointed. If you don’t win the games, you should be disappointed.
“We had great chances to score and we should have won. It was a very important game.
“I did not see any chances where it was difficult for the goalkeeper, it was not a good save from Juan Mata, it was a bad finish.
“Some saves he made for the cameras.”
Manchester United will take on Leicester City in their next Premier League game on Sunday.
