‘Ibrahimovic Will Struggle In Premier League’- Wenger

Zlatan Ibrahimovich

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger believes Manchester United summer recruit Zlatan Ibrahimovic could struggle in the Premier League, due to his age.

Ibrahimovic, 34, joined United on a free transfer after scoring 50 goals in all competition for former club Paris Saint-Germain last season.

Yet, the Arsenal boss is unsure if the Sweden international can handle the pressure of English football with his age.

“Honestly I don’t know [how he will get on],” Wenger said of Ibrahimovic who turns 35 in October.

“Going for him is his class, his talent, his desire to do well. What goes against him is that he is not the youngest player anymore, so you are questioned about that in every game.

“From what I saw of him last year at Paris Saint- Germain, it was his most complete season as an individual player and as a team player. He became a really great team player last season.

“On the mental aspect he will bring something to Man United as well. He is a winner, he has charisma and he will give them a strength as well as his individual quality.”
