Solskjaer Advised To Sign This Player After Bournemouth’s Defeat


Manchester United manager Solskjaer failed to grab his fourth consecutive victories against Bournemouth as it ended 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The Red Devils were surprisingly defeated by Eddie Howe’s side as a solitary goal from Joshua King was all that the Cherries needed to condemn the Old Trafford outfits to their fourth defeat of the campaign.

Having seen the same team’s display against Bournemouth, former United star Paul Ince told Solskjaer to make move for Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich in January.

According to Ince while speaking with Paddy Power, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will help young United players learn more goal-scoring tricks while his presence at Old Trafford will have a great impact on the growth of Solskjaer’s relatively young side in no time.

“But I think, if he wanted to, returning to Old Trafford would be the way to go. ‘He’d be great at educating all of these young players that Ole is looking to bring through, an incredible off-pitch influence as well as on the field,” he said.

He further stressed that signing Mario Mandzukic isn’t the best option because the Juventus striker has nothing to offer when it comes to controlling the dressing and motivating the young players.

“They need someone who can control the changing room and be a true leader, and he fits that role. He can show the young players how it’s done. He would be the Godfather of United’s dressing room. I can’t see Mario Mandzukic happening – so why not take Zlatan?” he asked rhetorically.

Ibrahimovich was a top goal-poacher during his days at Old Trafford and United fans wouldn’t mind having him around if that will help in solving the goalscoring problem at Old Trafford.
