WATCH: Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores probably the worst goal of his career
Zlatan Ibrahimovic may have over 400 career goals, but we’re pretty certain none of them as been quite as bad as this.
They all count, of course, but even Ibrahimovic himself wouldn’t contest that his opener for Manchester United in their Europa League round of 32 first leg clash against Saint-Etienne probably didn’t go as he planned it.
Watch the goal (and his two others) below.

Standing over the ball 25 yards out, Zlatan has form in absolutely leathering the ball from a similar sort of distance.
This time, however, came a scuff, then a deflection, then a wrong-footed goalkeeper, then a defender scrambling to save it, to no avail.
As we said, though, they all count – and fortunately for Zlatan, YouTube compilations of ‘the worst goals you’ll ever see’ are few and far between.
Plus, he scored a hat-trick in the Europa League which is more than we’ll ever achieve.
