Cape Town - Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has declared that he will contribute more for the team as the season progresses.

The former Sweden international netted four goals in his first four Premier League fixtures, but then went six games without finding the back of the net.

Ibrahimovic put an end to the drought against Swansea on Sunday, scoring a brace, and has vowed to continue improving in the English top flight.

"I think I could have scored a couple more goals than I have done - I missed pretty good chances which I didn't see myself doing," he told Inside United.

"But it's a different game here [in England]. Here, it's different compared to the ones [the leagues] before.

"When you play a game here, there is no team controlling it, it's back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. That's the way the game is, you have to get used to it.

"With my performance, I am happy. I know I can do more, I know the team can do more and I want to do more and I will do more."
