The return of a lion, Zlatan back in action, what
will now happen at
DATE: 25.11.2017 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2017-18
Zlatan made his
return to action earlier this month. The fact that the Swede has
made his comeback before schedule is fantastic
The 36 year old came on as a sub against Newcastle in the 77th
minute replacing Anthony Martial. Midweek he made a new appearance
coming on again for Martial, but sadly not able to score and on the
pitch when Basel hit the winner in the 89th minute.
Few thought it was possible for a player at his age to return to the
very highest level of football, but as he said himself, he is not
human, but a lion, and is back in action and of course something we
all love to see.
His first season at Man Utd was much about Zlatan, taking his
position in the team and in a way helping the club to two titles
last season and despite ending outside the top four in Premier
League, getting a place in the Champions League via their Europa
Of course Manchester United are after the big titles and the start
of this season, with Romelu Lukaku in and Rooney out, has been much
better placed in 2nd after 12 games played.
To get Zlatan back in action is of course fantastic for Mourinho who
will have one more quality player to chose from in his arsenal of
great footballers, so we will just wait and see what this could lead
Jose Mourinho signed Lindelof and Lukaku in front of the season, a
fellow Swede and a Belgian top quality forward, but it will not
affect the position of Zlatan as an "icon" and a "boss" inside the
Man Utd dressing room.
Sweden made the impossible act of going through to the World Cup
after a great result at home winning against Italy, with both Jose
Mourinho and Zlatan in the stands, and the big question just minutes
after the final whistle blow, will it be a place for the veteran in
the World Cup squad.
Officially Zlatan retired from international football after the 2016
Euro's, and so far there is no answer if he will return. The Swedish
people would love to see Zlatan in "yellow and blue" again, but we
just have to wait what happens.
To see that the national team and also Manchester United are doing
fine without their veteran forward is also a sign of things, but we
all hope that everything will be a good return for Zlatan and that
he will have a great season with Man Utd.
