He’s surely been the signing of the summer so far in the Premier League, and Bryan Robson thinks Zlatan Ibrahimovic can propel Manchester United to the title, just like Robin van Persie.
Van Persie joined United at the age of 29 in 2012 and won the league in his first season.
“Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 34 and it would have been nice to get him at 28 or 29, something like that, but the way he played for PSG last year showed he has a lot to offer still and he looks really fit,” former United midfielder Robson told MUTV.
“I think back to Sir Alex’s last year when everybody talked about Robin van Persie’s age and his injuries when he joined, but he won us the title with his goals that season. Hopefully Zlatan Ibrahimovic can do the same.
“He will take the pressure off Wayne Rooney as well. Every time we’ve had a bad result the excuse is that Wayne didn’t play particularly well.
The pressure has always been on him to perform and Zlatan will take that away from Wayne a wee bit, so Wayne can relax and enjoy his game.”
