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.
