Jose Mourinho Expects Injured Man Utd Star Back Before New Year

November 2016

It sounds like Zlatan Ibrahimovic might be back among the Manchester United fold sooner rather than later despite suffering an cruciate injury that may well have ended the career of lesser 35-year-old's just six short months ago.

The 36-year-old striker is making impressive progress in his recovery from knee ligament damage after being rewarded with a contract until the end of the season.

The Portuguese secured the services of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic over the summer, alongside agreeing a new one year deal with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"Zlatan is here, he's working here, under our control", Mourinho said ahead of the trip to the John Smiths Stadium to take on Huddersfield Town A.F.C. tomorrow. "I think he is looking forward to coming back, most probably in December or January time".

Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick all remain sidelined, while Mourinho appears no closer to discovering when Paul Pogba is likely to recover from a long-term hamstring issue.

In Mourinho's case, there were a couple of areas - left-back and attacking midfield - he wanted to address that the club couldn't get over the line - mainly because, by August, a loaf of bread would have cost around £100m on the transfer market.

"Paul Pogba is not here, I don't know when he comes back, when he is available, I don't know about it".

The United boss confirmed the knee injury sustained by Marcus Rashford during the 1-0 win over Benfica on Wednesday would not rule him out of contention for this weekend, with the same group of players at his disposal.

"I don't want to speak about signings yet, or market or Jan, we are in October, we have Nov, Dec and half of October to play, so why should I speak about the market".

"Doesn't mean I don't miss the players, I would like them to be here for us".

"Nobody is back from injury but what we have is good".
