Video: The story of how Ibrahimovic recovered from a career-threatening injury at 36

By Isak Möller -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a key player for Milan since his arrival in January, helping the team recover from years of low self-esteem. In many ways, his impact has been out of this world, a phrase we often say about him. 

Back in 2017, when he was playing at Man Utd, the Swede suffered a career-threatening injury. Not only did he tear his ACL, but his knee also sustained serious damage in other places, although the details haven’t been revealed.

In a video on youtube, UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) explained the surgery and Ibrahimovic’s incredible recovery at the age of 36. The video is from last year, but still well worth a watch.
