Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Man Utd striker will play again after ‘successful’ knee surgery

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola says the Manchester United striker has had successful knee surgery in the USA and he “will make a full recovery”.

The 35-year-old suffered cruciate knee ligament damage in a Europa League win over Anderlecht on 20 April.

But Raiola stressed in a statement that the Sweden international’s injury was not career-threatening.

Ibrahimovic is coming to the end of a one-year contract at Old Trafford, and is yet to agree an extension.

He scored 28 goals this season, after joining United on a free transfer from Paris St-Germain last summer, and has begun rehabilitation in Pittsburgh where the operation took place.
