Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned from a seven-month injury layoff in Manchester United’s 4-1 victory over Newcastle in the English Premier League. He has not scored but he made a good 15 minutes.
“I feel special,” Ibrahimovic said. “Different day, same quality. I am not worried at all because I know what I can do.”
Asked if he feared the knee ligament damage was career-ending, the 36-year-old Swede replied: “Lions, they don’t recover like humans.”
Paul Pogba is also here after long months of injury. “The most important thing is Zlatan came back, I came back,” Pogba said. “We were more effective.”
"Lions, they don't recover like humans."
"We're doing the lions thing again, yeah?"
