Jose Mourinho has made it known to Manchester united fans that the long wait for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to return to action will be over very soon, Mourinho confirmed this saying Zlatan Ibfahimovic would play for Man united in 2017.

Ibrahimovic has been out since April after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament. But the 36-year-old forward having recovered swiftly is closing in on a first-team comeback.

After suggesting last month that the former Sweden international could be back this year, the Portuguese boss is now certain of it

“He is a lion, he is a fighter,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“I think that is a good description of him, he has the anger all the time and that’s the reason why he’s almost coming back.

“As we expect, he’s reduced the timing of his recovering and, as we were saying a few weeks ago, he will be back in 2017, which is a magnificent recovery.”

However Zlatan is happy to recover and to be back to the team as he has admitted he could cope and play well in his number 10 role for united.
