Zlatan Ibrahimović is the top scorer of the 2016/2017 League Cup

Zlatan Ibrahimović is a player who needs no introduction. He changed a lot of clubs during his career. Manchester United, where the Swede spent a couple of seasons was among them. By the way, you can find current football scores of matches involving the “red devils” at the site of sports statistics.

The first season at “MU” was especially successful for Zlatan. The Swede won the Super Cup, the Europa League and the League Cup together with the team. Moreover, he even became the top scorer in the last tournament. Ibrahimović scored 4 goals in the 2016/2017 season of the League Cup. He then shared the title of top scorer with Daniel Sturridge. Most importantly,  the Red Devils were able to win the trophy thanks to the Swede’s performance. Moreover, you can watch the current scores of all football matches of this team on the sports statistics website.

Ibrahimović demonstrated his effectiveness in the decisive matches that season. He managed to make a double in the final game. These goals proved to be decisive in winning the trophy. Unfortunately, serious injuries prevented the Swede to appear on the field regularly during the next season, so he could not show his best and had to leave the club. However, Zlatan earned the love and recognition of the fans with his brilliant play.

Why did Zlatan beat his competitors?

There are not so many matches in the League Cup, so the spirit for each individual match is important. Ibrahimović had no problem with this. He showed his best in the decisive encounters, which allowed the club to win the trophy, and he personally won the title of the top scorer. By the way, if you follow the team even now, but you missed the livescore yesterday, then go to the sports statistics website. Only verified information can be found here.

As for Ibrahimović’s achievement, it was made possible thanks to:

  1. Excellent choice of position. The forward initially started from a better position than his competitors. At times, it was enough for him to make just one accurate shot to score.
  2. Excellent game on the “second floor”. This is not surprising, because Ibrahimović is almost 2 meters tall.
  3. Help of his teammates. Mkhitaryan, Mata, Lingard and other players regularly created chances for the Swede. He was the centrepiece of the Red Devils’ attacks, so he regularly got chances to demonstrate his strong qualities.

All of this, as well as a great self-confidence, allowed him to pull himself together and to show his best at the crucial moment of the season.
