Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has given an update on Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his press conference today as the player recovers from injury.
The Swedish international suffered a huge injury to his knee during last season and has only recently returned to first-team action.
Though, the player is struggling to get back in full flow this season and looks to have been sidelined in recent weeks.
Jose Mourinho confirmed today that there was something up with the player at least, but he did explain that the player could not be happy with his condition.
Now, the Portuguese boss has set a time frame on for when he should return to training.
“Zlatan is injured, or is not totally happy with his condition,” explained Mourinho.
“He fought like a tiger, like he likes to say, to be back, which he did.
“He was starting having minutes here and there, he had a start, he had 60 minutes of one game and started another one, and had 45 [minutes], and he was not happy with his feelings.
“He consulted other doctors and other opinions, and we all made the decision to stop treatment.
“When he’s feeling really good, he can come back to work.
“The date for him to be back to training with the team was around the end of January or beginning of February, so let’s hope his feelings are better and we have him as soon as possible.”
