Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reiterated that he never left Manchester United but only upgraded his number.
“I never left, I just upgraded my number @manchesterunited”stated the 35-year-old former PSG striker who scored 17 goals and rendered seven assists in 22 matches for the Red Devils last season.
The big Swede signed one-year a surprise one-year deal with the Red Devils last month as he makes his comeback from a horror knee injury.
He is expected to return around Christmas time to help Jose Mourinho’s side’s charge towards the Premier League title.
The Swedish legend had been taking his badges for a career in coaching as he nears the later stages of his time on the field.
But the ex-PSG superstar has put them on the back-burner to focus on recovering from his ACL injury, which has kept him out since last season.
An Old Trafford source said: “Zlatan had been doing a bit with his badges while he made his comeback from injury.
“The club have indicated there could be a role for him here at some point. He isn’t getting any younger after all.
“He has a lot of belief in himself though and thinks he could play until he is 40, so will take his time with his licences.”
