Manchester United are continuing to embark on what must be the worst 20-game unbeaten run in Premier League history, aptly summing up the state of play at Old Trafford right now.
Though there’s little doubt Jose Mourinho has indeed improved the Red Devils since taking over from former mentor Louis van Gaal last summer, though United are far from the finished product just yet.
Crucial to keeping this season on track has been the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack. There were doubts about the superstar Swede’s suitability for life in the Premier League upon his arrival from Paris Saint-Germain, though the 35-year-old has proved as lethal as they come.
So, suggestions he could leave a United side struggling to even break into the top four shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. Still, recent reports hinting Ibrahimovic will leave IF United don’t win the Europa League are perhaps the biggest indicator of the club’s malaise of late.
It’s hard to imagine a player being able to dictate this kind of situation. Not even Cristiano Ronaldo could do that.
A wonderful player perhaps, but should Zlatan be allowed to dictate United in this fashion? Should they have to dance to his tune?
