If Man United Needs Me, I’m Here! - Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Austin Papi

Former AC Milan and Juventus striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has said he would be available if his former employers need his services.

He stated that even at 37, he can easily play in the Premier League and joked that he would return to Manchester United if they need him.

The 37-year-old Swede international left Old Trafford for Los Angeles in the Major League Soccer (MLS), in USA, after spending just one season with the red devils.

His attacking presence and social media tantrums have been missed by Manchester United barely 17 months since he left.

When asked about his fitness in a post match interview recently, Zlatan said: "I could play easy in the Premier League, so if United needs me, I'm here, but Galaxy has me, so I'm sorry.”

He was asked about his ambitions and if he had any plans to return to Europe and competitive football, he replied: "Nah, I did my job in Europe. I enjoyed it, I have 33 trophies that I brought with me here and hopefully I can get something here. And then we will see where that adventure finishes."

Many Manchester United fans have wondered if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team would have fallen to a 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace if Ibrahimovic was still at the club over the weekend. But Zlatan does not seem to agree.

"I look, I look, I look, I saw the last game and I think they were unlucky. If they score the penalty, it's a different game but a game in England is not finished until its finished,” Zlatan said.

"Anything can happen, especially in the last minutes where everything is in the heat of the moment."
