“After his contribution last season he deserves our trust and we will be patient waiting for him to return. I have no doubt that he will be important in the second part of the season.”

Ibrahimovic, who will wear the No. 10 shirt this season, said: “I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay.

“I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready. I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch.”

Ibrahimovic was released at the end of last season but is now back at Old Trafford for the 2017-18 campaign.


In April, he suffered a knee ligament injury that brought his first season in the Premier League to a premature end.
