Veteran forward Ibrahimovic won the 2017 edition of the Europa League with Premier League giants United in a two-year spell at the club.xHe was a big success in particular during his first season at United, where he won over fans with his goals and exciting play before a serious knee injury suffered in their Europa League last eight tie with Anderlecht ended his 2016-17 campaign. headtopics.com
“I’ve been so impressed, I’ve got to say, by how his career has gone,” United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the club’s website.“He had a career-threatening injury when he was here but came back from that and went to MLS, then came back to Milan and has really lifted them. They’re on the up and have done really well this season.
“It’s one of the those draws again that you feel could be a Champions League game. It’s good for us to have these games to look forward to.”xMilan, a club which despite its illustrious history had long been in the doldrums, have been revitalised since Ibrahimovic’s return in December 2019.
