Ibrahi­movic: I’ll be back even bet­ter

Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic has said he will be a “bet­ter ver­sion” of him­self when he re­turns from in­jury to Manch­ester United. The 35-year-old left Paris Saint-Ger­main for Old Traf­ford last sum­mer and scored 28 goals in his maiden cam­paign in English foot­ball.

Ibrahi­movic scored in both the EFL Cup and Com­mu­nity Shield suc­cesses at Wem­b­ley, as well as play­ing a key role in United’s tri­umphant Europa League cam­paign - the com­pe­ti­tion in which he sus­tained a se­ri­ous knee in­jury.

Five months on and the striker is mak­ing im­pres­sive progress in his re­cov­ery from knee lig­a­ment dam­age and, hav­ing ini­tially been re­leased in the sum­mer, has been re­warded with a con­tract un­til the end of the sea­son.

“I feel good,” said Ibrahi­movic, whose team-mates host Ever­ton to­day. “I have trained every day since I had my knee op­er­ated on, there is no va­ca­tion.

“When I come back to play foot­ball on the field I will be bet­ter than be­fore, I am not com­ing back be­cause I am the one I am, I am com­ing back to be a bet­ter ver­sion of the old one. Imag­ine how that will be!

“I feel good and I feel my move­ments are there. If it was up to me I would like to play foot­ball to­day but it doesn’t work like that.”
