Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes he can easily still cut it in the Premier League and the self-styled lion would be ready to roar again for Manchester United was it not for the LA Galaxy.
It is just 17 months since the veteran Swede moved to the city of stars, where this confident, larger-than-life striker is proving a hit in Major League Soccer.
Ibrahimovic’s brace in Sunday’s thrilling 3-3 draw with rivals LAFC took his tally to 46 goals in 49 appearances – not bad for a 37-year-old, never mind one that had to fight back from serious knee ligament damage.
That injury in April 2017 brought an abrupt halt to a superb first season at Old Trafford, where his 28 goals included efforts in United’s EFL Cup and Community Shield successes.
Ibrahimovic would only make a further seven appearances under Jose Mourinho and the well-travelled striker keeps a close eye on a club he could still do a job for.
