Arguably one of the best signings for United in the post Ferguson years, Ibra made an immediate impression for United in his first season, scoring 28 from 46 in all competitions. So, why did United let him go? Here's why in was a great decision:

Whilst 28 goals from 46 games would be a great tally for any top flight striker(the benchmark often being the 1 in 2 equation, ie, 1 goal for every two games), it was a slight decline off his goal a game average of recent seasons(50 from 51 for PSG in 2015-16).

Whilst it's true that it does take time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League, how much improvement can an ageing body(35) do better each successive season when the body is deteriorating with each passing year?

In addition, his injury on 20 April 2017 against Anderlecht, resulting in Ligament damage, sidelined him for a lengthy spell. As anyone knows, recovering from serious injury takes longer the older that one gets. Even if Ibra makes a 100% recovery(bodywise), how long would it take him to rediscover his sharpness and motivation?

Zlatan does not lack self-confidence, that's one thing that's certain, however, a world-class striker who is well and truly over his peak, who is showing signs of dropping off in his strike rate, and, who is recovering from a serious injury, is not in a position to command the earnings that he could once haven earned, nor could he be AS effective in leading the line in Champions League matches.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic is an absolute legend, and, he may still warrant record breaking figures in leagues such as MLS. However, to lead the line for Manchester United is a bridge too far. This legend will likely best be served by remaining....the stuff of legends

Mourinho on Wenger-The Leopard Changes It’s Spots?


As quoted on ESPN, Mourinho has done a 180(apparently) in his opinion of Arsene Wenger. The leopard truly has changed it’s spots!

Consider the following quotes:

  • “Football now means if you don’t get success then you are gone — so yes, I feel bad for other managers. When you are at one club for 20 years it is impossible to have success every single year. Even Sir Alex will tell you that.”
  • “The truth is that I hope Wenger keeps his job at Arsenal. I really do. I hope that the club trusts him to make things better. I think that Arsene is probably the last example of a manager who brings stability to a club over such a long time”
  • “Sir Alex was the same at United and he was able to leave when he knew it was time to leave. I hope that it is the same with Wenger. Why not?”


Jose went on to say that he will likely field an understrength team tonight and hopes this makes Wenger happy.

Is this truly the leopard changing it’s spots? Or, is it another chapter in the Mourinho mind games? It is unlikely that Jose would try to increase the confidene of his opposite number, but, we will learn more later today
