Zlatan Ibrahimovic has not suffered a career-ending injury after an operation to repair knee ligaments was declared a resounding success by his agent Mino Raiola.

There were fears Zlatan wouldn’t play again after landing awkwardly during the Europa League clash with Anderlecht.

Hopes of signing a new deal at Manchester United or moving to the MLS looked over, but Raiola has revealed the procedure to fix his knee went well.

Raiola said: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic has undergone successful knee surgery. He will make a full recovery AND HAS NOT SUFFERED A CAREER-ENDING INJURY,’ Raiola has confirmed in a statement.

“The procedure was performed by Freddie Fu, M.D., and Volker Musahl, M.D., of the UPMC Sports Medicine program in Pittsburgh.

“Zlatan has started rehabilitation at UPMC and will remain under the care of Dr. Fu and Dr. Musahl throughout his recovery.

“Zlatan and the medical team are not available for interviews at this time. Additional updates will follow at a later date. “
