Shooting Boots Missing for Zlatan Ibrahimović


The 35-year-old Swede forward has endured a deep in goal scoring form for Manchester United, going 7 games in all competitions without a single goal, the longest goal drought in his entire career that has seen him top goal scorer in more than two leagues in Europe.

Ibrahimović moved to the Theatre of Dreams from PSG in the summer on a free transfer and was tipped to solve United’s attacking problems but has seemingly been far from doing just that. Since his goal in the Manchester derby, the forward has had 57 shots at goal without converting a single one. With 47% shot accuracy, Ibrahimović is definitely at his lowest, a stat typical of a player at 35, but not one of his ( Ibrahimovic’s) calibre.

At the Manchester Derby, last week, the Swede endured a sticky first half that turned around when he changed the boots he was putting on, assisting Juan Mata in the second half, maybe a change of boots is all he needs to regain his form but as it stands the world wonder is below par.
