Thierry Henry: Why Zlatan Ibrahimovic Returned To The Premier League

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 27, 2017 11:58 AM @KeeganKruger

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has revealed why he thinks Zlatan Ibrahimovic decided to stay in the Premier League and return to Manchester United.

Official: Zlatan Rejoins Man Utd

On Thursday, it was announced that the 35-year-old striker signed a new one-year deal with the Red Devils after his initial deal came to an end in June.

Despite winning the League Cup and the UEFA Europa League last season, Ibrahimovic saw Jose Mourinho’s men finish sixth in the English top flight, and Henry believes the Swede is back because he wants to conquer the Premier League.

"They kept Zlatan, but I think Zlatan takes it as a challenge that he has with himself. I believe he wants to do more, and he still didn't win the league,” Henry told Sky Sports.

"I know that he intends to win the Premier League, to make England another country that he conquered."

"I'm not surprised because if I were there (at Man Utd), I would want to keep a guy like Zlatan in and around the dressing room.

"Having him around (Romelu) Lukaku, having him around Marcus Rashford (is beneficial). Rashford was talking about it last year, and he knows how to get that dressing room together.

"I'm not surprised in a way because we are talking about Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the best that has done it in the game, for me."

Ibrahimovic is still recovering from a serious knee injury but will be hoping to add to his tally of 28 goals he managed to score last season.
