Zlatan Ibrahimovic out for a month - Official Manchester United Website
Jose Mourinho has revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be absent from first-team football for a month due to injury.
The boss gave the news in TV interviews following United's goalless draw against Southampton, for which Ibrahimovic was absent from the matchday squad.
He had returned to competitive football against Newcastle on 18 November, after a seven-month lay-off due to a knee ligament injury sustained in a Europa League match against Anderlecht last season.
Ibrahimovic made his first start of the campaign in the Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat away to Bristol City, and marked his return to the side by thundering in a second-half free-kick.
A first Premier League start followed against Burnley, but now the striker is set for another spell on the sidelines.
