Mourinho Faced With Striker Problem Ahead Of West Brom Clash

Published

Mourinho

Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his much anticipated return from injury as a substitute last month in a 4-1 victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford. Since then, he has made 4 more substitutes appearances with an accumulated 73 minutes playing time.

It was assumed that manager, Jose Mourinho will take his time to ease the veteran striker back into full time action, as he recovers from a serious knee crucial ligament that ruled him out of action since April, and that has been the case. But as United travel to the Hawthorns on Sunday, many believe this might be the time for his first start.

Jose Mourinho must now face the decision of handing Zlatan (as he is popularly called) his first start of the season also considering he played no part in their 1-0 victory over Bournemouth in midweek.

The 36-year old was Man United’s top scorer last season with 28 goals in all competitions before the injury cut short his season.

They were fears his career would be over after suffering such a serious injury and also at his age but he returned earlier than expected and is awaiting his chance to prove himself once again.

Mourinho had earlier suggested that Ibrahimovic is not ready to play the full 90 minutes but the recent struggles of Romelu Lukaku might force his decision to play the veteran Swede from the start.

Manchester United are currently second in the league standings, 11 points behind rivals Manchester City and will need all their players to perform when called upon, Zlatan Ibrahimovic included.

romelu lukaku

Fallen Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly turned down a big bid from Inter Milan for star striker Romelu Lukaku.

According to Sky Sports, Manchester United have rejected a €60m (£53m) bid for Lukaku from Inter Milan.

Only his pal Paul Pogba has been involved in a more expensive transfer after Manchester United paid £89m for him to return to the club a year earlier before the Lukaku transfer.

Since his transfer to Manchester United, Romelu Lukaku has scored more than any other player at the club.

The 26-year-old scored 27 goals in all competitions in his debut campaign as a Manchester United player during the 2017/18 season.

No other Manchester United player scored more during that campaign.
