Blackmore calls for Man Utd to bring back Ibrahimovic

Former Manchester United midfielder and coach Clayton Blackmore says they should re-sign LA Galaxy star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic is thriving in the MLS having scored 49 goals in 50 starts for LA Galaxy.

“I definitely think we should ask Zlatan to come back, we need a target man - he's the best target in the world," Blackmore is quoted by the Daily Express.

“6ft 5in black belt, he's proved in the MLS he can still do it.

“I thought we let him go because his knee was dodgy - we've now given Zlatan and [Wayne] Rooney [away] for nothing.

"We won [the] Europa League, League Cup and Community Shield when he played for us.

“Thirteen years ago, the Barcelona goalie out-run Zlatan - he doesn't run much yet he scores goals [at] every club he plays for.

“We need a target man so all our kids with pace can play off him [in a] 4-4-2 [system], and close [them] down quicker.

"Here ends the lesson, it's a no-brainer."
