Jose Mourinho has spoken out about Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return at Manchester United, claiming he’s happy the big Swede will be back at Old Trafford.
He scored 28 goals last season before his season ended prematurely with a serious knee injury and wasn’t given a new deal as he continued his rehabilitation at Carrington.
The 35-year-old has returned to United this week and it’ll be a massive boost to have him back in action once he returns to full fitness.
Speaking about a move, Mourinho is delighted with the arrival of Ibrahimovic.
“I’m really happy that he’s with us,” he said.
“Because [it] shows two things for me – it shows me the dimension of the player and the dimension of the club. The dimension of the player because it would be very easy for him to say goodbye, to say it’s enough, one European competition, had success at Manchester United, big injury, goodbye.
“He doesn’t do that. He wants to follow his other dreams and he wants to play football at the highest level.”
He was expected to be out until just after Christmas, but as he’s been working very hard, is now set to be back in late October.
Zlatan may play behind Romelu Lukaku but he’ll always have a big presence on and off the pitch and it’ll be brilliant to watch him back in action, back to finish what he started.
