Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Player of the year in Ligue 1

Ibrahimovic bagged his 28th and 29th goals of the season in the 3-1 win over Brest at the weekend and the Swede has been widely hailed as the jewel in PSG's crown as they claimed their first top-flight league title since 1994.

On Sunday night, he succeeded Eden Hazard as the Ligue 1 player of the year ahead of team-mates Thiago Silva and Blaise Matuidi, and St Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

"I came to a new country. It was not an easy situation, but everything went well. We worked hard. Now is the time to enjoy it," said the former Barcelona forward.

It was a night to savour for the Parisians, with seven of their players named in the team of the year, while wantaway Carlo Ancelotti was named joint coach of the year alongside St Etienne's Christophe Galtier.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
