He signed on at the club for just one season and after a mixed start to life at Old Trafford, has been considering the option of staying for longer.
The 35-year-old was voted Swedish Player of the Year for the 11th time on Monday night even though he he has suffered on the pitch in recent games but if you were putting money on it with 10Bet, you’d still certainly back him to score 20 goals this season.
Speaking about his situation at the club, Zlatan claims Man United are still in a position to challenge for the title.
“The team I signed for this summer is not as strong as the one I left, but when Mourinho called the decision was easy. When he calls I have no problem coming, all we had to decide was when I was to be presented as Man U player. The rest, the financial deal, was not the difficult part,” he said.
“It was about the challenge really, and I will never say no to a challenge. This is what I wanted; coming to one of the world’s biggest clubs, that has had troubles and not won much of late, and try the Premier League. That is the challenge.
“We started off well with a few wins in a row, then we started losing, and we lost playing badly, by several goals. We had a week when we lost three games, that has never happened to me in 15 years.
“There were a few games where I didn’t score and missed too many chances, but these things happen. As long as I’m there and create the chances and get the ball the goals will come.
“I hope to challenge for the title, I believe in what we do. I know the capacity of this team, but it’s still a long way to go. With a bit of luck we should be able to do it.”
After an impressive start to his campaign at Old Trafford, Zlatan suffered one of the worst goal-scoring droughts of his career, but following his brace against Swansea City, he should be ready to go.
He has served his suspension against Arsenal and is expected to be back in the squad for our upcoming fixtures.
