Is there anything Zlatan Ibrahimovic can't do?

Upon signing for Manchester United earlier this summer on a free transfer, many were quick to predict he would flop in the Premier League.

Well, early signs suggest he is made for England's top-flight.

Three goals in his first two league games is an excellent start for the 34-year-old striker and, heading into United's clash with Hull City on Saturday, he will have had his fourth in sight.

And with no more than three minutes on the clock, he pulled off a magnificent piece of skill that showed he was in business (see below).

From a cross down the right-hand side, Ibrahimovic raised his leg almost above head height to acrobatically bring the ball down inside Hull's penalty area - while under pressure too.

The Swede eventually lost possession but his touch was yet another demonstration of just how much of a machine he is.


At the time of writing this (half-time) Ibrahimovic had done very little else worthy of note but his skill was enough to suggest that he still has plenty in the tank.

Despite having technically entered the twilight days of his career, the self-confessed 'God of Manchester' believes he has more to offer and will only get better.

Following United's recent win over Southampton, he said: "I'm becoming better with every day. As long as I feel I can develop I’m happy.

"I believe that we can win the title, I have this vision, but we need to work hard for it and we will do everything to bother all the other teams that want to win.

"Yes, I've scored three goals so far and I'm happy for that but it is only the beginning. The season is long, I will work hard, the team will work hard and slowly we will get better and better, so let’s see what the outcome will be.

"I'm focusing on trying to help my team win and after two games we have two wins - which is the most important thing.

"Who scores is less important, as long as we are winning."

The best is definitely yet to come.
