Zlatan & the Europa League trophy

Awesome for Man United: Zlatan Ibrahimovic injury update

Zlatan Ibrahimovic & Man United

When will Manchester United fans get to see Zlatan Ibrahimovic back in action?

Zlatan starred for the Red Devils last season. The Swede scored over 20 goals for United as Jose Mourinho won the League Cup and Europa League in his first season at Old Trafford.

A few weeks ago, Zlatan confirmed that he’s agreed a new deal to stay at Man United this season too.

The Swedish superstar has agreed a new one year deal, although he’s still not ready to return to action quite yet.

Ibra’s 2016-17 campaign was cut short after he suffered ligament damage against Anderlecht.

He’s been sidelined ever since, although Zlatan seems to be defying the odds with regards to his comeback timetable.

When the injury first happened, many though Zlatan would be out of action until after the 2018 New Year.

But that timetable has been revised, as the Swede could be back on the pitch much sooner.

In that context, a fresh Zlatan update has been posted on social media this week.

The Man United striker was spotted out and about by a fan, and the striker duly took a selfie with the man.

Ibra was also quizzed about when he’s set to return, and he replied “very, very soon”.

Does that mean he’ll be available in October, or latest in November?

It’s worth noting that Man United take on Liverpool on October 14 at Anfield.

It would be typical Zlatan behaviour if he made his return against Man United’s long term rivals.
