Man U's Ibrahimovic out with knee injury

Man U's Ibrahimovic out with knee injury

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is unlikely to play again this season after suffering a serious knee injury during Manchester United's win against Anderlecht in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Ibrahimovic had been rumored to be considering a possible move to the MLS, but that likely will not happen this season due to his knee injury.

Ibrahimovic may well have now played his last game in a Red Devils shirt, with his one-year contract set to run out at the end of June. While he was able to hobble off the pitch, reports believes the former Sweden worldwide could be sidelined until 2018, such is the severity of his injury, while there are some suggestions his career could be curtailed completely.

Manchester United performed well enough without him on Sunday beating Burnley 2-0 with French forward Anthony Martial and veteran Wayne Rooney scoring.

But victory came at a cost as increasingly important defender Rojo left the field on a stretcher in the first half, before top scorer Ibrahimovic's knee buckled after landing awkwardly just before extra-time.

Marcus Rashford proved a capable deputy for Ibrahimovic, netting a smartly taken victor to send United into the competition semi-finals for the first time.

Recovery from an ACL tear ranges from 6-9 months for most players, but tearing his PCL at the same time might lengthen Ibrahimovic's recovery timeline.

Zlatan escorted out of the pitch by Manchester United medical team. Zlatan in this phase of his career it is really hard and Marcos was in the best moment of his career, playing very well for us and finally getting a position as a centre back in the national team.

At times he has carried the team this season, his form earning him a PFA Player of the Year nomination.

Asked about their condition, Mourinho said: "I want to wait, but my feeling is not good for both".

Jose Mourinho's side are still in the hunt for a fourth-place Premier League finish and will play in the semi-finals of the Europa League, but they'll have to cope without Rojo.
