Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has insisted he will not retire from football following his “significant knee ligament injury” against Anderlecht in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. The Swede only has a few months remaining on his current deal with many worried that this will be the end for the illustrious striker.

Given his elder age of 35, many fear that this injury could spark the end of the striker’s career as the recovery time is reported to be around 9 months. Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma suffered a similar injury to the striker last year, d was forced to sit on the sidelines for 7 months before finally returning to the pitch.

However, in his most recent Instagram post, Ibrahimovic has vowed that he will not give up on a return to the sport.

“First of all, thank you for all the support and love, It’s no news I got injured so I will be out of football for a while. I will go through this like everything else and come back even stronger. So far I played with one leg so it shouldn’t be any problem.

“One thing is for sure, I decide when it’s time to stop and nothing else. Giving up is not an option. See you soon.”
