Zlatan coy over his future at Manchester United following Europa League success

Date Posted,May 25, 2017

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is remaining coy on his Old Trafford future following the Red Devils’ Europa League victory over Ajax.

The Swede is recovering from a serious knee ligament injury that has seen him miss the conclusion of United’s season and was forced to watch from the sidelines as team-mates lifted the Europa League in his home country last night.

The 35-year-old has not yet signed an extension to his current deal at Old Trafford and is expected to miss the next eight months.

But following the 2-0 win over Ajax, Ibrahimovic refused to disclose whether or not he would return to United next season.

“In a few weeks I’ll be back in the field,” he said. “Where? Let’s see.”

Following his surgery the Swede insisted he would ‘come back even stronger’ as he ruled out retirement.

Jose Mourinho has been heavily linked with a move for Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann this summer.

After joining in with the post-match celebrations, the former Milan striker insisted that this was a win for the collective and he played his part.

“I had a different role. I supported the team, but what matters is that we won. That’s the most important thing because this is a collective trophy.

“You win and lose together. Now we raised another trophy, which is the third this year of the five available.

“When you win, you are always good, you don’t feel even more pain. I regret not being able to play this game. It is normal, I wanted to be on the pitch but the situation is this.”
