Initially perceived with scepticism by many, Zlatan Ibrahivomic has surpassed all expectations this season as he continues to deliver for Manchester United. With 28 goals in all competitions so far, Zlatan certainly has been a very integral part of the current Manchester United side.
The importance of his goals aside, Ibrahimovic has also brought something more important to United with regards to his winning mentality and leadership skills.
This was evident in the match against Anderlecht as the United frontman was seen barking instructions to his team-mates after Mkhitaryan’s opening goal in the first-half.
The Swede was seen cutting short the goal celebrations stating “We need to do more, lads”. And sure enough that proved to be case as Anderlecht eventually clawed back to secure a 1-1 draw in the second half.
Had his team-mates paid more heed to his statement, United would most probably be boasting more than an away goal advantage ahead of the crucial 2nd leg next week.
That said though, United fans were quick to appreciate Zlatan’s efforts following the goal. Check out the video of the incident below!
