Man Utd ace Mata: We're waiting for Man City to stumble

Man Utd ace Mata: We're waiting for Man City to stumble

No matter who you support, you've got to have a soft spot for the Swedish striker who has freshly returned from seven months out with an ACL injury.

There was no shortage of doubt over Ibrahimovic taking to English football at age 35 previous year but it took little time for skepticism to simmer down. Many questioned whether the enigmatic Swede would be able to handle the physical demands of life in England at the age of 36, but he put in a string of top-class displays last season for The Red Devils, and finished as the club's top scorer with 28 goals in 46 appearances. Following the expiry of his contract, United subsequently extended his stay.

When you are exhausted of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, you are exhausted of life. "That I have now proved, rather than just saying it".

Juan Mata has admitted that Paul Pogba will be a "big miss" forManchester United ahead of Sunday's clash with Manchester City, but insisted that another player will "try his best" to step up in his absence.

"The day he arrived, we were away on pre-season", Mata said.

'They had never met him before and he's the sort of guy that garners instant respect because of the way he carries himself.

"Zlatan apparently looked the kit men up and down and said: 'I hope you know God has arrived'".

"If we arrive in a position where we want to be in February or March then we can think about "we won on Saturday and they won on Sunday". He always does that".

Mourinho has said of his possible involvement in that game after missing two fixtures with a slight knock: "Truth is that [Eric] Bailly is out for the weekend, [Phil] Jones a chance, [Marouane] Fellaini a chance, Zlatan a big chance and [Nemanja] Matic is injured, but will play for sure".

Jones had formed a strong partnership with Eric Bailly in central defence, and with the latter also now side lined it remains to be seen if Mourinho will immediately bring him back into the starting XI.

According to an exclusive report covered by Calcio Mercato, Manchester United and Mourinho are interested in signing the 22-year-old star, who is rated around €80million ($94million). Have your say in the comments section below.
