Look everyone, Zlatan Ibrahimovic hasn’t forgotten how to kick a football during injury lay off

A speedy recovery?

We don’t really know how long it’ll be before Zlatan Ibrahimovic is playing professional football again.

We don’t even know for which club it will be, either, despite fresh reports that he fancies sticking around for another season at Manchester United.

What does seem clearer however, is that the Swedish striker will play professional football again – something that some doubted when he fucked his knee up good and proper against Anderlecht a few weeks back.

A few days after sharing a post of him stepping up his recovery at United’s AON Training Complex, Zlatan has shared another video to his Instagram feed, reassuring his followers that he’s not lost the ability to kick a football during his time on the sidelines.

‘The touch will never disappear,’ a typically confident Zlatan states in the accompanying caption. ‘Lions don’t recover like humans’.

The touch will never disappear. Lions dont recover like humans. @azsportswear #itsnotaboutthegear

Ibrahimovic joined his United teammates in Stockholm last week as he watched them secure a return to the Champions League through victory over Ajax in the Europa League final. It remains to be seen if he will extend his stay in Manchester, with his agent Mino Railoa claiming he’s already received plenty of offers.
