Zlatan Ibrahimovic has undergone surgery on the knee injury he sustained against Anderlecht in the Europa League last month.

The Manchester United striker collapsed in heap after landing awkwardly and was later found to have suffered cruciate ligament damage.

However, word emanating from the Ibrahimovic camp seems to suggest that, having travelled to the United States for an operation, the 35-year-old is now on the mend.

Thankfully, while Ibra’s season may have been ended prematurely, agent Mino Raiola has assured everybody that his client’s injury isn’t career-threatening.

Speaking in a statement released to the press, Raiola said:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has undergone successful knee surgery. He will make a full recovery and has not suffered a career-ending injury.

The procedure was performed by Freddie Fu, M.D, and Volker Musahl, M.D, of the UPMC Sports Medicine program in Pittsburgh.

Zlatan has started rehabilitation at UPMC and will remain under the care of Dr. Fu and Dr. Musahl throughout his recovery.

Zlatan and the medical team are not available for interviews at this time. Additional updates will follow at a later date.

Thank god. It definitely looked touch and go for a moment there.

    What do you think Pies? Will he play for Man United next season?

      Personally, I think Mourinho is desperate to keep him on for one more year. He’s a coach who likes to have ‘soldiers’ to rely on.

      As for Ibra himself, I can’t see him sticking around for another year in the Europa League. That might be the clincher.

      He is healing and scouting…to pull a Drogba, Beckham.
