Zlatan Ibrahimovic modestly announced his move to Manchester United with the Instagram message: “I am coming.”
But the downside of giving it the big I am, is that you leave yourself exposed if you do not deliver.
So Ibrahimovic is finding as he endures his worst barren league run since 2007 at Inter Milan.
Those five goals in his first five United games feel a long time ago and he has managed just one in his last 10 matches.
In terms of conversion rates, Ibrahimovic’s is even worse than the pound and he has netted just four times in the Premier League from 57 attempts on goal.
The striker’s slump was summed up when he volleyed wide from just two yards from the easiest of his 12 chances in kitchen sink time.
In addition to that miss, the Swede also fluffed game-changing opportunities against Stoke, Liverpool and Chelsea to cost United. The form that saw Zlatan score 38 goals in 31 leagues games for PSG last season is long gone.
Ander Herrera defended Ibrahimovic and claims the 35-year-old hitman has the character to get back among the goals.
“I think if one player can get back and pass this moment, it’s him because his attitude, his character, the way he works,” he said.
“I have no doubt he is going to score a lot of goals for us. But it is not only him, we have all missed a lot of chances.
