Manchester, March 3 (IANS) Manchester United chief coach Jose Mourinho said his Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is fit but can’t help the English football giants for a winning cause.
Ibrahimovic signed a contract extension in 2017 after returning from a knee operation in November last year, he has been sidelined since the Boxing Day draw with Burnley at the Old Trafford here.
However, Mourinho feels the ongoing season will be his last with the club and Ibrahimovic has the right to choose his future.
“For Zlatan, we all think it’s his last season at Manchester United and it will be a very personal decision for him to play or to stop,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by manutd.com.
“I think he won the right of choosing his life and his future – he’s such an amazing player with such an amazing career that only that awful injury in the wrong moment broke a fantastic couple of seasons that he could, and should, have with us.
“This season has been really difficult for him. Is he injured? No, he’s not injured. Does he feel totally happy and totally ready and totally convinced that he’s in (the) conditions to help the team in this moment? No,” the Portuguese tactician added.
