Zlatan Ibrahimovic issues warning to Man United boss Jose Mourinho

Zlatan Ibrahimovic issues warning to Man United boss Jose Mourinho”

Ibrahimovic was the Red Devil's top scorer last season, netting 28 times in all competitions, including twice in the EFL Cup final win over Southampton.

But the 24-year-old former Everton and Chelsea striker is not shirking from the challenge that Ibrahimovic will pose to his starting spot.

Mourinho has maintained since handing fresh terms to Ibrahimovic that the experienced striker will not be ready for competitive action until January.He has, however, been included in United's Champions League squad and there have been suggestions that he could come back into contention before the end of 2017.

But the ex-PSG superstar has put them on the back-burner to focus on recovering from his ACL injury, which has kept him out since last season.

However, with the presence of Ibrahimovic looming over him, will he be resigned to the bench in favour of Ibrahimovic? "I wanted to play for [Jose] Mourinho since I was 11". Lukaku believes the veteran's experience and character will benefit the team.

The other big issue is - United's attack seems to be much better and much more fluid Lukaku playing up front as opposed to Ibrahimovic.

He still has a couple of months at least to go before he can consider himself truly match fit but Ibrahimovic does now look close to a return to contact training, and he has a message for his manager, Jose Mourinho, ahead of that imminent return... That's what we want at Manchester United.

For those not in the know, the Swede had worn the No.9 jersey for the 2016-17 season but the club's record signing (Lukaku) had been keen on the number and to the relief of all the club, Zlatan gave it up without a fight.
