Following his substitution last night, during Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the Europa League, reports today suggest Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out for the rest of the season.
With the shoreline still at 1-1 and United needing a goal to prevent a penalty shoot-out, Ibrahimovic looked to lock his knee and go down in some pain.
A stretcher was brought on but he was able to hobble off, giving hope that it might not be too serious. However, there have been suggestions that he won’t recover before the season ends.
This is a horrible blow for the striker who clearly will have had his eye on playing in the Europa League final in Stockholm next month. It may also mean he’s played his last game for United as he’s yet to agree a deal for next season.
