Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a ridiculous ambition for Man United this season


It seems Zlatan Ibrahimovic may not have been entirely sure what he was signing up for when he joined Manchester United.

The Swedish superstar, who has won 31 trophies throughout his illustrious career, has had a brilliant first season at Old Trafford, scoring 20 goals in all competitions.

Despite being 35, the striker has easily been their most influential player this term.

However, even with his efforts, Jose Mourinho’s side are still 6th in the Premier League.

They have long been out of the title race, but that doesn’t mean Ibra is ready to give up on winning silverware altogether.

In fact, he has told reporters of his crazy aims for the rest of the season – even Mourinho must be baulking at his ambitions.

“From five trophies this season, we have won one [the Community Shield] and we are still in four,” he said.

“From the teams in front, only one will become champions. The rest will not get a trophy, but we have one and we can get our second one [the EFL Cup] and we are still in the Europa League and FA Cup.

“So if we don’t become champions in the Premier League, at least we can try and win two or three trophies.”

United’s first chance will come against Southampton at Wembley in the final of the EFL Cup in thirteen days’ time.


There is still a way to go in the Europa League and FA Cup, though, and the Red Devils have to balance all that with a push for the top four.

Supporters may be split over whether they would rather miss out on the Champions League again or add to their trophy cabinet, which has only seen one FA Cup since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Yet, United are only a point behind fourth-placed Liverpool, so it’s still all to play for, even if they’ve never looked like title contenders.
