Lukaku does not fear Man Utd competition with Ibrahimovic

Lukaku does not fear Man Utd competition with Ibrahimovic”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic simply doesn't do understatement.

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has put coaching plans on hold.

The enigmatic frontman has been out of action since damaging knee ligaments during a Europa League meeting with Anderlecht in April.

The 35-year-old, who is expected back in December, signed a new one-year deal in August following a fine debut season in England where he scored 28 goals in 46 games.

They splashed out £75 million on Lukaku over the summer, but having another proven alternative - allowing for rotation or a tactical tweak to a two-man frontline - will give Mourinho useful options during what promises to be another hectic campaign.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played for the likes of Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG. Lukaku is able to dribble past players with exploding speed and strength, he's able to muscle any opposing defenders away from him, his hold-up play is nowhere near as bad as many would have you believe and he compliments the attack behind him very well.

Lukaku, who has become United's main striker, said recently Ibrahimovic was still beneficial to have in the side.

In an interview with the BBC, Lukaku was asked if the competition from Ibrahimovic could help him improve.

Mourinho has also included Ibrahimovic in the Champions League Squad this season but will return in January.

Ibrahimovic has usually worn No. 9 throughout his career, including at United last season, but Romelu Lukaku claimed that number after arriving in the summer.
