Last Thursday during Manchester United‘s Europa League win over Anderlecht, fans witnessed famed striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffer a knee injury. It’s now been confirmed that the Swedish superstar will have to travel stateside for his operation happening on Wednesday in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Ibrahimovic will face nine to 12 months out with his ruptured anterior cruciate knee ligament, meaning his time playing at Old Trafford will have run out.
