Dean Ashton backs Zlatan Ibrahimovic as new Signing

Former West Ham United striker Dean Ashton believes that the Premier League outfit should try and sign Paris St Germain superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swede is one of the instantly recognisable names in world football and he recently revealed that an exit from the French capital may be on the cards. His contract runs out at the end of the campaign and that there has been no talk about a new deal. At 34 years of age, he still has only a couple of years left at the top of the game. Even though PSG may be interested in giving him a new contract, it is understood that Zlatan wants to experience a new culture and challenge.

West Ham will provide these aspects and their move to the Olympic stadium in the summer fits perfectly into the requirements of the 34-year-old. The massive stadium will be able to support 60,000 fans at the same time. This will bring West Ham in line with clubs like Arsenal and Manchester United in terms of stadium capacity. After having played only for big clubs throughout his career, Ibrahimovic will not want to play in front of a few fans. For this reason, Ashton believes that West Ham may have a chance to sign Ibrahimovic and that the club should not forgo this option at any cost.

Louis Van Gaal happy with Squad

Louis Van Gaal believes that the main reason behind Manchester United performing much better this season is that there is more balance in the squad now.

The Red Devils have won 5 out of their 7 games in the Premier League 2015-16.

They topped the table last weekend when they defeated the Black Cats at home.

Speaking post that win, Van Gaal said, “This is a good bunch of players. But, wins are never guaranteed. We might lose somewhere down the line. Luck plays its part as well. But, one thing is for sure is that we have got more balance in the squad this time around and thus, we should be having more positive results.”

“Improvement is something that we should always look for. We have to keep getting better and better with each passing week.”

“As far as I am concerned, rotating the players is much easier for me. If you had observed the previous season, I didn’t opt for much rotation as the balance was not there. So, I would say I am more comfortable now. But, you can only do so much as manager. It’s the players who hold the key. If the structure that is there in place is acceptable to everyone or not, that is very important. At the moment, I am doing my job and the players are doing their job fantastically well too.” Continue reading Louis Van Gaal happy with Squad
