THIERRY HENRY is in no doubt Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be hurt by his recent form.
The Manchester United striker fired another blank last Saturday, as Jose Mourinho’s men were held to a goalless draw at home to Burnley.
After hitting four goals in his first four Premier League matches, Ibrahimovic has netted just once in the club’s last 10 matches in all competitions.
Prior to the Burnley match, Ibrahimovic had missed more big chances (six) than any other player in England’s top flight.
And while accepting Ibrahimovic is going through a rut, Henry is convinced the 35-year-old will find a way to work through his problems in front of goal.
“Sometimes it’s okay if you don’t score but your team still wins but he knows he’s had great opportunities to score goals in important games,” Henry told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show.
“Yes, it does affect you but I would still back him to deliver for United because of the player he was and he is still.
“It hasn’t happened for him recently for United, but he needs to find a way to score goals because they need that.
“Does it affect him? Yes, he’s a human being but he has the right tools in his mind to recover from that.”
