Zlatan: ‘I’ve conquered the Premier League in just three months’

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels like he has “already conquered” Premier League football and it took him three months to do so.

The legendary Swedish striker is the Red Devils’ top goalscorer this season and is just one goal behind Chelsea’s Diego Costa in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

And Ibrahimovic’s bold claim came after he was asked whether chasing down the Blues striker was his top priority this season.

“No, I’m not chasing anybody,” Ibrahimovic said to ManUtd.com.

“I’m chasing the head trophy – the Premier League. That is my aim. The individual things come as part of the main objective because that is like a bonus for every individual player.

“If the collective does well, then the individuals will do well. I try to help the team and try to do what I’m best at – scoring goals, playing good and creating chances for my team-mates.

As long as I can do that, I know I will help my team. The same thing with them, they help me the way they can for the team.

“I have no individual targets because that I did already, after three months in England. After I conquered England – it took three months.”

Manchester United, meanwhile, have reportedly triggered the one-year extension clause in Marouane Fellaini’s £120,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford.
