Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been ruled out for the rest of the season. The Swede picked up a knee injury in the Red Devils’ Europa League quarterfinal win over Anderlecht on Thursday night.
The 35-year-old landed awkwardly on his right leg after trying to win a header in stoppage time. He was replaced with French striker Anthony Martial.
The former PSG striker has been influential to the Jose Mourinho-led team’s campaign this season with 17 Premier League goals.
Mourinho has expressed worry over the situation saying his team is in trouble.
“We are in trouble,” said Mourinho.
“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, but in attack, we have options and Rooney is coming, and let’s see if (Juan) Mata can also return before the end of the season. Let’s see what happens.”
They play Burnley in the Premier League knowing a victory will move them closer to a Champions League place, one point behind fourth-placed Manchester City.
