Zlatan Ibrahimovic is currently recovering from an injury he sustained in the away game against Roma. This forced him to miss the first leg against his former side, Man Utd, but he could be back for the reverse fixture.
The 39-year-old has missed almost half of the games this season due to injuries, having played just 21 of the 40. Despite this, he has bagged 16 goals and it’s clear that he’s still world-class his body allows him.
According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, Ibrahimovic is aiming to be back for the second leg against Man Utd on Thursday. Of course, in such a big game it would be a boost to have the striker on the pitch. However, his return is far from obvious.
He worked separately from the squad in yesterday’s training and he still needs at least a few more days before we can think about it. When Ibrahimovic puts his mind to something, though, he usually gets what he wants.
