Manchester, Nov 19: Manchester United key striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic who made a return from his injury to play against Newcastle United in the English Premier League (EPL) tie said his comeback was special.
The Swede, who was out since April with a knee ligament injury, came from the bench after the 70th minute in Manchester United’s 4-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday.
“No, because lions they don’t recover like humans,” the Swede was quoted as saying by the Independent.
“It’s special. Different day, same quality. I am not worried. I am not worried at all because I know what I do. I train hard. I sacrificed a lot.
“It is not easy, especially in my case. It was not like I went on vacation. I had a different summer because I was without a contract. As soon as I signed I wanted to focus on the team. I wanted to give something to help the team as best as possible.
“It’s about coming back and making a statement. I’m just thankful I can play football again,” Ibrahimovic added. IANS
