After being away for more than six months due to an injury, Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his comeback for Manchester United on Saturday.
Ibrahimovic was brought on late in the game for Anthony Martial as United turned around a first-half deficit to record a convincing 4-1 win over Newcastle United.
Speaking after the match, Ibra noted that he was never in doubt that he would recover from the injury, stating that ‘lions don’t recover like humans’.
