Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores on his Premier League debut because that’s what he does
August 14, 2016
Proving that his goal in the Community Shield was just him getting warmed up, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored on his Premier League debut to help Man United to a 3–1 win over Bournemouth.
No doubt thinking that if Wayne Rooney could score (which he did five minutes earlier) then Zlatan must too, Ibra fired a shot from considerable distance into the bottom corner of the net, leaving our friend Artur Boruc unable to stop the inevitable.
Scoring on his debut in a new league is something of a tradition for Zlatan as he has now done it on five occasions.

It was once thought that Zlatan couldn’t get the job done in England, but after his first two competitive matches, that clearly is not the case.
