When you’re as charismatic and successful a player as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, you’re likely to expect a lot from your team mates.
The Swede has at times this season dragged his Manchester United team across the line on several occasions – but even he seems to be feeling the frustration that emanates around Old Trafford these days with some interesting remarks following the 1-1 draw against Everton at Old Trafford.
Speaking with BT Sport, Zlatan referred to himself as a “lion” who feels the pressure to win games for his team – which doesn’t reflect too well on the rest of his team.
When questioned about whether there were enough lions in the team, the ex-PSG striker responded with “The table does not lie. The team is where it is because it is what it is” – not the most contented of appraisals there.
The Sun chose to use their ‘journalistic license’ in their coverage of Zlatan’s remarks – and while that may be a bit too sensational, United fans will be hoping that the thoughts of their maverick forward can inspire some greater performances from the Red Devils.
