Ibrahimovic wants to conquer Premier League

Thierry Henry believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still desperate to conquer England by winning the Premier League with Manchester United.

The Swede,  ,who has signed a one-year deal with United, scored 28 goals last season, before his initial one-year deal came to an end.


United finished sixth in the Premier League, though they did win the League Cup and Europa League, and Henry told Sky Sports that Ibrahimovic will be aiming to win the title this season for Jose Mourinho’s side, who have won both opening league games 4-0.

“They kept Zlatan, but I think Zlatan takes it as a challenge that he has with himself. I think he wants to do more, and he still didn’t win the league.

“I know that he wants to win the Premier League, to make England another country that he conquered.”

“I’m not surprised, because if I was there [at Man Utd] I would want to keep a guy like Zlatan in and around the dressing room.

“Having him around (Romelu) Lukaku, having him around Marcus Rashford [is beneficial]. Rashford was talking about it last year, he knows how to get that dressing room together.

“I’m not surprised in a way because we are talking about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the best that has done it in the game, for me.”
