Manchester United Resigns Ibrahimovic

By Dipo Olowookere

League leaders, Manchester United, have resigned their former striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after he was released by the club last season due to a knee injury he suffered during a Europa League semi-final match.

The injury had put his career on hold, but the 35-year-old former Swede, who made 46 appearances and scored 28 goals for United last season, has been recovery very fast.

Speaking on the development, Ibrahimovic said, “I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch.

“It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay.”

“I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready.”

On the part of the Red Devils’ manager, Jose Mourinho, he said, “After his contribution last season, he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return.

“We are delighted Zlatan is on the road to recovery and we are equally delighted to have his ambition and experience back with us.

“I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season.”

Last season, when United won the Europa Cup to qualify for this season’s Champions’ League, some Red Devils’ fans begged Ibrahimovic to stay at the club and one of them even offered his wife to the former PSG, Inter and Barcelona player.
