Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s worst moments against Burnley in one video

Football News

Zlatan Ibrahimovic had 12 shots at goal against Burnley on Saturday afternoon but failed to find a way past Tom Heaton.

That was more shots than Middlesbrough, West Brom, Hull City, Crystal Palace, Burnley, Leicester City and Sunderland all managed in their respective Premier League fixtures this weekend.

Gary Lineker joked on Twitter that Zlatan had ‘missed approximately 347 chances today’ but it must have felt like that for the frustrated United fans sat inside Old Trafford.

How he didn’t score was a mystery. Gary Neville, speaking after the final whistle, told Sky Sports: “Ibrahimovic, who is a good finisher, he won’t believe he hasn’t scored a goal in this match when he goes home tonight.”

Zlatan wasn’t the only player guilty of missing a good goalscoring opportunity against the Clarets - United had 37 attempts at goal in total - but he was responsible for missing the best chances during the 90 minutes.

There’s no excuse for the close-range sitter he missed at the end of the match.

Zlatan: The new Fernando Torres?

Some football fans are even comparing Zlatan to Fernando Torres; presumably the version who flopped so spectacularly at Chelsea, rather than the world-class striker who tore the Premier League apart at Liverpool.

Zlatan to be rested for Fenerbahce match?

Ibrahimovic looks in desperate need of a rest and will be interesting to see whether Mourinho brings Wayne Rooney back into the starting line-up, in place of his superstar teammate, for Thursday night’s Europa League clash against Fenerbahce in Turkey.
