Mourinho Predicts Early Return for Ibrahimovic

Share

Mourinho revealed that he has the same pool of available players to pick from this weekend as he did for Wednesday night's Champions League win over Benfica, meaning that Phil Jones and Marcus Rashford will both be fit to feature.

He said: "Paul is not here".

The Manchester United striker's season was cut short in April when he suffered a serious knee injury to rule him out of the start of the Premier League campaign.

Jose Mourinho has admitted that Paul Pogba isn't close to a return to injury, but has confirmed Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on course to return for Manchester United before the end of 2017. Gary Neville spoke at the opening of Salford's new stadium about how Manchester United are title contenders for the first time in four years. "He's working here and under our control".

"They've played in teams who have won leagues and in really exciting teams", Gerrard explained, "but for someone who hasn't won the league I see it more as clever management and tactically spot on if they go on to win it".

"He's not going to be back next week or a couple of weeks".

"Everybody knows every manager wants to have all the players available it's just then a question of the way you position yourself in relation to that".

Ibrahimovic, who's now recovering from a cruciate ligament injury he sustained at the backend of last season, is ahead of schedule and Mourinho feels he can count on him in 2017.

"He did it (recovery) very well, I talked to Zlatan while at the gym a while ago, I think he hopes to get back in December or January", Cole told FourFourTwo.

On United's general injury situation, he said: "The injury process normally is a process of some guys get injured, some guys recover from injury, unless we lose completely the balance, this happens to nearly every team. Yes I do, but it's just a feeling".

"The way we think is the best way to do it is to speak always about opportunities for others, trust for others and believe in others". "I don't know when he comes back, when he's available, I've no idea".
