Ibrahimovic's doctor insists Zlatan will return to action when he's 'fully fit'
“I have no worry about his injury as it always takes time to fully recover", Dr Freddie Fu has said.
“In fact the EPL has just started and I am sure Manchester United would not need the player urgently for any crucial game either in the league or European competitions.
“He is very strong but soccer is still a combative sport. As a doctor, of course I want to see him return as slow as possible, only when he is fully fit for the game. There have been many cases of a player returning prematurely with bad consequences.”
"I have treated almost 60 professional players and Ibrahimovic is certainly one of the best and strongest players I have ever operated on.
"He has a very strong attitude. Even before the operation, he firmly believed he would come back in his soccer career and would not retire just because of the injury.
“And when we examined his knee, other than the ligament injuries he sustained, the joint, the muscles and other parts of his knee are all in top-notch condition, just like those of a 15-year-old boy and not a soccer player who has been [subjecting his knee to the rigours of] fierce physical competition for so many years.
“His operation went very smoothly.”
