“Absolute winner” Zlatan leaves former boss awe-struck as he chases Messi record

Date Posted,December 30, 2016

Leo Beenhakker signed Ibrahimovic as a raw teenager for Ajax from Malmo when he was the Dutch club’s technical director in 2001 and knew then he was a special talent.

Ibrahimovic needs two goals for Manchester United against Middlesbrough on New Year’s Eve to surpass Messi’s haul of 51 club strikes and finish 2016 as the leading scorer in the world’s top leagues.
