Ibrahimovic Wins Premier League’s Best Player Award
Manchester United forward, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for December after his five goals helped Manchester United find winning form.
The 35-year-old Swedish has enjoyed his first season in English Premier League and now has a total of 18 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils.
He opened December goal against Everton at Goodison Park, then claimed United’s late winner in their 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace.
Ibrahimovic again scored twice in a 2-0 win at West Bromwich Albion and one against Sunderland on Boxing Day.
In addition, the giant striker scored in United’s 2-0 UEFA Europa League win away to Zorya Luhansk, securing his team’s to the knockout round.
‘I am playing in a great team with great team-mates, a great coach and at a great club,’ said Ibrahimovic, who joined United on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain over the summer.
It was a double success for United in the monthly accolades, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan winning the Carling Goal of the Month for December with his scorpion kick against Sunderland.
