Mourinho believes Zlatan will be back before the new year

February 2015 Manchester United FC: All the times Jose Mourinho 'cried' about injuries

Veteran striker Ibrahimovic has been out of action since sustaining a serious knee ligament injury in the Europa League quarter-final clash against Anderlecht at Old Trafford last April.

Having initially been released by the club in June, he recently re-signed with United and took over Wayne Rooney's former number 10 shirt for the new season.

"Zlatan is here. He's working here and under our control", said Mourinho.

Ibrahimovic was expected to be out until January because of the seriousness of the injury, but progress has been good and Mourinho feels he could return before the year is out.

In Mourinho's case, there were a couple of areas - left-back and attacking midfield - he wanted to address that the club couldn't get over the line - mainly because, by August, a loaf of bread would have cost around £100m on the transfer market.

"Do I think he will be back in 2017? Yes I do. But it is just a feeling".

$40 Million Lawsuit Filed Over 'Dangerous' School Bus Stop
It is illegal to pass any school bus that is stopped and operating a visual signal - either flashing red lights or a stop sign. Motorists should be especially vigilant around any stopped school bus with or without flashing lights.

"The injury process normally is some guys get injured, some guys recover from injury unless we lose completely the balance this happens to nearly every team unless some team has a phenomenal season where everything goes well and not even a broken nail happens to a player".

However, Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo and Michael Carrick are set to miss out.

"I don't know what to say", he said. "[Soon], Zlatan, Marcos [Rojo], Pogba and Fellaini will be back and somebody [else] will get injured and I think that's a normal process".

"The way we try to do it is to speak about opportunities for others".

The United boss confirmed the knee injury sustained by Marcus Rashford during the 1-0 win over Benfica on Wednesday would not rule him out of contention for this weekend, with the same group of players at his disposal.

"I love his banter and I think his enthusiasm for the game of football, and what he is around the complex, speaks volumes about him".
