Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Joined Man Utd on a free

Paul Scholes believes that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will find life far more difficult at Manchester United than with Paris Saint-Germain.

Scholes believes that, while Ibrahimovic is fit, he will have to create more of his own chances.

The former Manchester United midfielder also believes that United’s squad is not as good as that of the French champions.

“We don’t know about Zlatan. He is 34 and probably going to play only for a year. Okay, he is a fit lad,” Scholes told Sport Witness.

“I think with Ibrahimovic it is, he was playing in a team of PSG and they created a lot of chances. It was easy for him to score goals in that league.

“This Manchester United team isn’t as good as the PSG team. It might be in time to come. He is going to have to do more for himself in the Manchester United team. More than he did at PSG.”

Scholes also passed comment on Manchester City’s signing of Ilkay Gundogan, who he believes will be an excellent player in the Premier League.

“I think Gundogan is a really impressive player. I’ve seen a lot of him at Borussia Dortmund.

“I think he has a lot of injury problems, which could be a problem,” Scholes said.

“If he can stay fit, I think he can be a fantastic player.

“I also think he is a great value for the money Manchester City paid for him. I think he is a bargain.”
