Zlatan Ibrahimovic is one tough cookie. He’s not as tough Mino Raiola would have you believe, mind you. But, in the real world, he’s quite a specimen. The Swede has shown this on the pitch for Manchester United this season.
Now he’s showing it off the pitch as well.
To suffer the worst injury of your career at the age of 35 might turn thoughts to retirement. But Ibrahimovic vowed to come back stronger than before after damaging his ACL in United’s Europa League semi-final with Celta Vigo.
Sure enough, he’s back in the gym only two weeks after receiving surgery.
Today he posted a video of himself walking in a pool to his Instagram account. The caption will get a lot of tongues wagging: ‘Ready for the final’. Surely he couldn’t mean he’s ready to play next Wednesday?
What he must mean is that he’s ready to support his teammates, right? Right?
