– Man United fans are worried about coping with Zlatan Ibrahimovic when they meet AC Milan
– The Europa League last 16 draw will see the Premier League club face their former player who is in top form
– Ibrahimovic spent two seasons with United and won the Europa League before moving to the MLS
United will need to worry about the Swedish striker who has failed to age three years after leaving Old Trafford.
And during his spell at the Theatre of Dreams, he won the Europa League in 2017 under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho.
Now that the round of 16 have brought Man United against Milan, the club’s faithful are beginning to worry about the threat of Ibrahimovic.
One fan said:
“You just know Zlatan is coming back to haunt us. Pray for (Victor) Lindelof & (Harry) Maguire.”
“Zlatan masterclass incoming against our defence, 100% #UELdraw”
One very excited United support added:
“TIME FOR THE BIGGEST BRAWLERS IN THE BUSINESS TO COME FACE TO FACE : ZLATAN HE FLYING KICKS IBRAHIMOVIC vs HARRY I KNOCK COPPERS OUT FOR FUN MAGUIRE.”
The 39-year-old scored 29 goals in 53 games for the Red Devils and is currently challenging for the Serie A title with Milan.
United qualified to the last 16 following a 4-0 aggregate scoreline at the expense of Real Sociedad while Milan made it through with away goals’ rule against Red Star Belgrade.
The Swedish striker put the two-time World Cup winner ahead of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo de Lima won the Ballon d’Or three times before retiring from the game and played for top European clubs like PSV, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and AC Milan.
