Inter v Manchester United is probably the pick of the Champions League clashes taking place this week. We have the Italian champions facing the English champions and it’s just possible that this man could make all the difference for the San Siro outfit.
The Daily Telegraph finds Jose Mourinho waxing lyrical about star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the dangerous Swede who the Manchester United defence will have to keep a watchful eye on. His manager has him down as one of the world’s best players and the forward will be keen to take advantage of United’s defensive injuries.
For me he is one of the best players in the world. He has had a very good season with Inter so far and I think we are bringing the best out of a player who needs to have the success to match his talent. United have had a great defensive record this season, for sure. But they have not had to deal with Ibrahimovic.
The game against United will be a big test for him. He will get the chance to play against the champions of Europe, to play against a defender like Rio Ferdinand. I am confident he will be dangerous.
With Nemanja Vidic suspended for the trip to the San Siro, do Manchester United supporters worry that the defence might struggle to cope with everything that the Inter team throw at them? Or will the Red Devils nick a vital away goal or two to ensure that it is they who are in the driving seat come the return game in a fortnight’s time?
