The worst feared scenario came true; Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the remainder of the season after his knee injury midweek against Anderlecht, and things don’t look much better for Marcos Rojo either, who suffered a similar injury earlier in the same game.
We are in trouble. We are in trouble
Jose Mourinho repeated talking to reporters ahead of United’s Premier League match at Burnley.
In this moment, Eric Bailly played six matches in a row, and we lost Marcos Rojo, we don’t have Jones or Smalling, we are in trouble and now we lose Zlatan too
the United manager said, looking a bit more optimistic regarding his offensive alternatives;
But in attack, we have options and Rooney is coming, and let’s see if Mata can also return before the end of the season, let’s see what happens
the Portuguese told reporters. United are sitting fifth in the table, four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, but also having a game in hand.
Mourinho’s team are also in the semifinals of the Europa League, where they will be facing Spanish side Celta. The winner of the Europa League earns a direct ticket to the Champions League group stage, which is United’s main target this season.
