Arsene Wenger says that Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic may only have a limited impact in the Premier League because of his age.
The much travelled Swedish striker has just arrived in England and will be looking to become one of the few players in the world to have won league titles in all major European leagues. He has been immensely successful in his club career by winning the league titles in Holland, Spain, France, and Italy. He has arrived at United as a free transfer after allowing his contract with PSG to expire.
In the past, Ibrahimovic has especially struggled against English opposition when coming up against these teams in the Champions League. This would come as a surprise since the 34-year-old is one of the physical players capable of performing in almost every scenario. Of course, this record has changed in recent years with Ibrahimovic helping PSG knockout the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City. It did not take long for the 34-year-old to make an impact in the team as he scored inside four minutes after making his debut in a pre-season friendly game. Yet, Wenger says that Ibrahimovic is unlikely to make a huge impact since age will take its toll on the player as the season progresses. Read more
