Zlatan Ibrahimovic could miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury in Manchester United’s Europa League quarter-final victory over Anderlecht on Thursday, throwing his future at Old Trafford into doubt.
Ibrahimovic was forced off in the 90th minute against the Belgian side after appearing to hyper-extend his knee when landing awkwardly, with many likening the image of his leg to the serious injury that Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma suffered in Feburary 2016 that ruled him out of action for nine months.
United defender Luke Shaw eased fears over the Swede’s injury and stressed that he was walking around in the changing room, but Jose Mourinho was not as relaxed when asked about his star striker and suggested he could face a spell on the sidelines.
“I want to wait, but my feeling is not good for both,” Mourinho said after match. “I want to wait and try to be optimistic, but I am not.”
United have at least nine games remaining this season, with seven Premier League fixtures added to by the Europa League semi-final two-legged affair and a possible final appearance increasing that number to 10, all within the next five weeks.
