Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has revealed that he thinks Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic deserves to win the PFA Player of the Year.

Ibrahimovic has netted 16 goals in the Premier League this campaign and 27 in all competions since arriving in the summer on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante seems a popular choice with pundits and fans but Souness thinks Ibrahimovic should win due to his impact on United this season.

“I have just voted for Ibrahimovic as my Player of the Year because he has been that good,” Souness told

“However, with my Liverpool hat on, how concerning must it be to United that their best player by a considerable distance is a 35-year-old who might not be there next year.

“You could argue that their second best player is Michael Carrick and he is also 35 and might not be there next season.

“They have a long way to go and I can see them missing out on the top four now. They have just had too many draws at home and don’t seem to have that killer instinct to finish teams off.”
