Andy Walker is of the opinion that Zlatan Ibrahimovic can fire Manchester United into the top four this season.
The Old Trafford club currently sit four points adrift of the Champions League spots after two consecutive draws.
Swede legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic since joining United in July has scored 19 goals this season. His goals already passed the total that saw Anthony Martial claim the top-scorer award for last season with 17 goals.
Former Celtic player Walker, while speaking earlier this week, insisted that Zlatan’s contributions in front of goal could cement United’s place in the top four come May.
“I think the title is beyond Man United but clearly they want to finish in the top four and get in the Champions League and Zlatan can help them do it.
“Since coming in, he has taken on the mantle of being at a club where every player has a great deal of pressure. He seems to love that pressure, he seems to thrive on it.” he said.
Ever since Robin van Persie’s superb performances in the 2012/13 season, Manchester United fans have been deprived of an enigmatic and ruthless presence at front that can score lots of goals required to win matches and cups.
Nevertheless Zlatan has to a good extent filled this void in the space of a few months. He is now United’s reference point and menace at the mouthpiece of attack. Even those who insisted he would never make an impact back then in July can not rule out the possibility of Ibrahimovic single handedly firing United back into the top four this season.
