LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed the English Premier League is “Overrated”.
The former Manchester United star scored 28 goals in 46 appearances in his Premier League debut season for the Red Devils, winning the Europa League and League Cup.
A Bad knee injury cut his time at Old Trafford short but Ibrahimovic has insisted his 20 months stay in England was damn successful.
Speaking to FourFourTwo, Ibrahimovic said: ‘People said, “You don’t need to go to England, because if you fail in England, people will always say you weren’t good enough”.
“Everybody was against it. And guess what? That made me motivated. That gave me adrenaline.
“I liked the Premier League. It gets a lot of attention, although I feel the quality is a little bit overrated – the individual quality, the technical part.
“As I said when I was in England, you’re lucky I didn’t come 10 years ago, because if I did what I did at 35 years old, imagine it if I was 25. Then it would have been a different story.
“I came there and they said I came in a wheelchair. All the people that talked, in the whole Premier League, I put them in a wheelchair. That’s what I did.”
He added: “I’m super proud and super happy that I went to United – it was the right club.
“We won, and I did what I did before I gotinjured. I had an excellent time – great memories.
“I’m attached to United forever. The supporters are amazing: wherever I went, I saw red shirts, which was fantastic. Advertisement It’s a very important moment in my career.”
