Yesterday 35 y.o. Swede secured the EFL Cup. It’s the first success for Man United manager Jose Mourinho since his summer appointment. And should say it was a great performance by Zlatan.
Southampton was better for most of the final, but Ibrahimovic struggled for victory and changed the whole course of the event. His contract expires at the end of the season and many told that keeping Ibrahimovic as a first striker is a mistake. But yesterday magnificent night silenced all doubts.
With 25th and 26th goals, he became Manchester United’s talisman. The first free kick was on 19th minute past Southampton’s keeper Fraser Forster. At the end, Ibrahimovic decided to finish the match and found space between Saint’s defenders.
That goal got cult status among Man United fans. Also, EFL cup is a 42nd trophy in the club’s history. It means Liverpool with 41 trophies is no longer most successful club in UK. So the next question is: will Zlatan stay in the Man United after the season?
The EFL Cup has won Zlatan. #ZlatanFacts
