PREMIER LEAGUE IS NOT EASY, SAYS IBRAHIMOVIC

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his Premier

League debut as Manchester United beat

Bournemouth, but he says adjusting to England

is tough.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits that he has not

found it easy to adapt to life in the Premier

League despite scoring on his debut in the

competition for Manchester United on Sunday.

The 34-year-old fired in from 25 yards to cap

United’s 3-1 win away to Bournemouth,

following a first-half finish from Juan Mata and

a header from Wayne Rooney.

Ibrahimovic has now scored on his debut in

Serie A, La Liga, Ligue 1, the Champions League

and England’s top flight, while he has two goals

in just two competitive matches for Jose

Mourinho’s side.

But the experienced forward says he was

simply happy to secure a win as he continues to

settle into life at United.

“It was a difficult game,” he told Sky

Sports. “We weren’t 100 per cent in the first

half, we couldn’t play our game, but we had

more space in the second half and could play

our game. But it was important to start good.”

When asked for his view on his first league

game, he said: “It’s not easy. A new

environment, new stadiums, clubs, teammates.

I just play my game. I try to do my job and help

my teammates. The first objective is to win, and

it’s also good if I score. But it’s the same

importance whoever scores.”

United captain Rooney feels Ibrahimovic’s

arrival has marked a statement of intent from

the club this year, though he insists he does not

feel as though his place is under threat.

“It’s always important to win your first game,”

he added. “We looked dangerous on the

counterattack and created chances. We have

made a real statement bringing in four great

signings and the new manager. There is a lot of

excitement from ourselves and the fans.

“I’ve not had to prove anything to anyone. I’ve

been playing a long time. I believe I’m good

enough to play.”
