Take Zlat!

Quote:
Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes the Premier League is overrated, but admitted a player must be able to handle the ‘rhythm’ of England’s top flight. The Swede spent a season at Manchester United, and scored 28 goals in 46 appearances despite missing ten games due to a serious knee injury. United regard Ibrahimovic as a hero despite his short spell, as the 37-year-old proved he could cut it in England.

Ibrahimovic now plays for LA Galaxy, where he has been equally prolific in front of goal, but revealed he thinks the Premier League’s reputation is deceptive. ‘I’d had a long career before I came – different kinds of countries, different kinds of clubs,’ told FourFourTwo. ‘People said, ‘You don’t need to go to England, because if you fail in England, people will always say you weren’t good enough’. Everybody was against it.

‘And guess what? That made me motivated. That gave me adrenaline. I liked the Premier League. ‘I found it very motivating and very exciting. It gets a lot of attention, although I feel the quality is a little bit overrated – the individual quality, the technical part. ‘But the rhythm is high. Even if you are the best, if you can’t handle the rhythm, the pace, then you will not succeed, because the pace is very high.’

There was speculation Ibrahimovic may be tempted back to Old Trafford, with reports claiming Jose Mourinho wanted to re-sign the striker. But Mourinho shot down those rumours last month, while Ibrahimovic is now being linked with a switch to AC Milan.

Ibrahimovic is still better than every striker at Man U..Heck Chelsea would have a realistic chance of winning the League if they had Ibra

If you take away all that, you are left with kung-fu fighting. This is why Ibra was successful in England at nearly 40 as he has a taekwondo black belt.

He should have gone to the World Cup!
