Ibrahimovic scores on debut and steals headlines.
Most pre-season games usually tend to revolve around a new signing. With the manager giving the fans a chance to see what he is capable of. And when United played Galatasaray yesterday and put Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his starting 11, fans were excited to watch the new man in action but wondered would he score on his debut? Well they werena��t kept waiting by the Swede, he scored within 3 minutes of his debut. With a scissor kick no less, the fact that he didna��t connect well with the shot and the ball bounced in front of the keeper and went in is a different fact, but he scored.
United did manage to win the match comfortable even though they were 2-1 down at half time, but Galatasaray gave them a tough time or was it that United’s defence gave them an easy one? Antonio Valencia proved to be the architect with three assists, while 30 year old Wayne Rooney scored two. But don’t forget Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who did hold his own in the United midfield.
“I’m going to help the team as much as I can and do what I’m good at, creating chances and scoring goals,” said the great Zlatan A�”There is something big on the go, it’s going to be very interesting this year. Let us say that if Pogba comes too, it’s going to be very interesting,” he finished with a smile. The 34 year old Swede also looked impressed with Marcus Rashforda��s performance after the 18 year was brought on after the halftime, and managed to win a penalty which Rooney converted.
United play Bournemouth on the 14 and if Zlatan keeps scoring goals like this, there wona��t be a fantasy manager in world without him on their team!!
