New Delhi: Manchester United suffered a debilitating 4-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge which exposed the crucial missing links inside Jose Mourinho’s star-studded squad. When the match was done and over with, the only assessment left were those from the analysts – one of them was definitely not impressed with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Former Manchester United defender Gordon McQueen said that Manchester United are “a million miles away from being good” and observed that Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic “played like an old man”.
Chelsea, who sacked Jose Mourinho, was overjoyed at the fact that they were not proven wrong. The loss kicked Manchester United to the seventh position in the league table.
“Ibrahimovic has done nothing so far and looks very poor. He looks like an old man playing football. He might have got 50-odd goals in France last season, but it’s an inferior league to the Premier League and he is proving it this season.There is nothing like our league for pace and intensity, and he is finding it out the hard way. Of course, it would help if he got some good crosses from the wings, but he’s not making the most of the chances he does get and doesn’t seem able to find that yard of space where it really counts,” Gordon said.
“It is not a lack of effort, I wouldn’t accuse any Manchester United of that, I just think he is not good enough, it’s as simple as that,” he said.
The former Man United defender who spent seven years with the Red Devils said that he is ashamed by United’s performances.For all the latest Sports News, download NewsX App
