Zlatan Ibrahimovic To Come Back ‘Even Stronger’ From Injury

share on:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s one-year deal at Manchester United expires this summer and manager Jose Mourinho fears the Swede’s recovery from a knee injury will be “really, really hard” given his age.

But the former Barcelona and AC Milan striker says injuries will not decide his future in the game and he has vowed to return.

“First of all, thank you for all the support and love,” he said in a post on his Instagram page. “It’s no news I got injured so I will be out of football for a while. I will go through this like everything else and come back even stronger. So far I played with one leg so it shouldn’t be any problem. One thing is for sure, I decide when it’s time to stop and nothing else. Giving up is not an option. See you soon.”

Speaking before Sunday’s 2-0 win at Burnley, United manager Jose Mourinho said on Sky Sports: “I know (how long he will be out for), but it is for the medical department to be more specific and they prefer to wait a couple more days because the players want to see other specialists and to have an extra opinion and we have to respect that. But they are important injuries.”

Asked whether Ibrahimovic would play again, the Portuguese replied: “I don’t care about it in this moment, I just want the player to recover the best he can.”

Ibrahimovic joined the club on a free transfer from Paris St-Germain last summer but is yet to agree an extension to his one-year United deal.
