The big Swede arrived in the summer on a free transfer and despite doubts that he wouldn’t be able to perform in the Premier League during the latter stages of his career, Ibrahimovic has silenced critics, already scoring 26 goals this season.
He’s been one of our best performers and no one would have been able to predict the impact he’d have at Old Trafford, with both parties already claiming a contract extension is order once the campaign is complete following his impressive start.
Speaking about his teammate, Jones claims Ibrahimovic has been brilliant in all aspects.
“Zlatan has been terrific,” he said.
“There were a lot of doubters, but he’s quietened them down now and deserves all the credit he can get at the moment.
“He’s shown everyone what he’s capable of. He’s been terrific for us. He’s got great movement off the ball, his feet are quick and he’s hard to challenge against in the air.”
Ibrahimovic claimed he would only sign a new deal once he knew he’d be able to perform at the same level next season, and that’s exactly the type of player we need at Old Trafford.
He oozes with confidence and I’m not surprised to see him doing so well because he’s worked incredibly hard to prove he’s still got it in the locker.
