Thierry Henry put his bet on Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic by saying that he has the character and ability to recover from his goal drought.
Ibrahimovic made a strong start to his career at Old Trafford while scoring five goals in his opening five competitive games for United but the 35-year-old former Sweden international has struggled since then. He hasn’t netted a single goal in the last six appearances for United in the Premier League as United have slipped down to eighth in the table.
His tally remained goalless as United played a 0-0 draw against Burnley in the Premier League last week. Though he had taken some excellent strikes in the match, that made goalkeeper rub his ribs, but unlucky to convert them into goals.
Ibrahimovic former team mate Henry, who played with him at Barcelona, thinks the former Sweden international has the mental strength to get back in the goals again.
Speaking on Monday Night Football, Henry said: “All the questions have been about Jose Mourinho and Wayne Rooney but now they are about Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
“It’s the first time he’s found himself in this situation in his career.
“He usually puts them in the back of the net because this doesn’t happen to him often.
“He’s going to have to deal with it. I know he has the character and the ability to deal with it but it will be better for him if it happens sooner rather than later.”
