SORRY SWEDE

The charismatic striker scored 28 goals in his debut season with Manchester United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has apologised to Manchester United fans, claiming ‘it would have been dangerous’ if he had arrived in the Premier League sooner.

The charismatic striker arrived at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016 on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain and was an instant success.

He scored 17 goals in 27 Premier League games and helped the club lift the Europa League and League Cup.

However, a devastating knee injury in the latter stages of the season saw him miss the vast majority of the following season.

Now at LA Galaxy, the giant Swede apologised to the Red Devils faithful – claiming they would have seen a ‘different lion’ had he arrived earlier in his illustrious career.

“I feel sorry for the fans – if they’d seen me younger, they’d have seen a different lion,” he declared.

“For the Premier League, it would have been dangerous, as I would have eaten them for breakfast; instead, I took them for lunch. But I came: they wanted me, I gave them me and I took over. Been there and done that.

“I would need more time to explain my feelings but let’s start with a big thanks to everybody – what they did was amazing and I hope they are as happy as I am,” he continued.

“I gave as much as I could for as long as I could; when I got injured, I got support in a different way. They always stood behind me and my team-mates.

“They are special: everywhere I see red, I think about United. It will remain in history and my career; when I look back at my time with United, I will do it with a smile.

“I wish them all the best in the future.”
