Zlatan Ibrahimović and Marcos Rojo will miss the best part of a year after tests confirm they have suffered cruciate knee-ligament injuries.
Both players were injured during Thursday night’s Europa League win over Anderlecht, and for Ibrahimović at least, it could be his last game for the club, or maybe, even his career. The 35-year-old is said to have suffered damage to his anterior and posterior ligament, which could, after surgical intervention, take around a year to heal fully. Zlatan is out of contract in the summer and the club are under no obligation to extend his current deal. The prognosis for Rojo is a little better, but reports of a return within four months appear to be a little wide of the mark. If the anterior cruciate has ruptured, his recovery will be closer to 9 months. Jose Mourinho said that Chris Smalling and Phil Jones may need to play through the pain: "They have injuries and they cannot [be involved on] Sunday. There are no miracles but with special spirit you can sooner than expected. So instead of mid-May you [return] beginning of May." Sat, Apr 22, 2017 12:53:00 PM
