Zlatan didn't come to waste time


Zlatan didnt come to waste time

Zlatan says he has a maximum of three seasons left and therefore cannot waste time

After another frustrating night at Old Trafford for Manchester United on Tuesday, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has warned that he didn't come to the Premier League club to waste time, opening the door for an exit for the Swede, should results not improve. 



It took an Ibrahimovic penalty in the fourth minute of added time to rescue a point for United against Everton, the Manchester club's ninth home draw of the season.

Manchester United have been difficult to beat this season, but have lacked the cutting edge at times that has prevented them from winning as often as they would have liked. With the push for the top four highly contested this season, the Red Devils face missing out in the Premier League run in. 

Speaking to MUTV after Tuesday's game, Ibrahimovic stated that "from day one I didn't come here to waste time, I came here to win." The frustrated striker went on to explain that with time running out in his career, he wants success and cannot wait around for that to come. He ended the interview by saying that he came to Manchester United to help them achieve success and "let's see what happens." 

This frustration and uncertainty will be of interest to clubs looking to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, including MLS side LA Galaxy, who have reportedly offered to make him the highest paid player in the league.
