Manchester United fans fired off online broadsides after Zlatan Ibrahimovic drew another blank against Burnley on Saturday.
When Swedish legend Ibrahimovic signed for Manchester United in the summer it is safe to say most Manchester United fans were extremely happy.
Things have gone downhill fast since then for the striker, however, after Ibra missed a hat full of chances against the Clarets, extending his goal drought to nine hours – his worst barren patch in nine years.

Predictably, Zlatan’s latest blank lead to an online outburst from frustrated fans.
Had enough. Need Ibrahimovic out of my club right now.

Oh boy, just how bad is Ibrahimovic?! Needs 20 chances to score one goal.

Others seemed content to suggest that Ibra’s poor form was dragging his teammates down.

While some preferred instead to praise Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who pulled off a string of saves to deny him.
