The surprising importance of Zlatan Ibrahimovic

… and yet, it’s something of a surprise just how important he’s become, and how quickly. Because when a side picks up a 34-year-old striker on a free, you generally think along the lines of: excellent squad option, nice to have an experienced head around the place, good example for the kids, and so on. You don’t think: yeah, he’ll play every game and establish himself as the focal point of the team’s attack.
