Ibrahimovic leaves door open to new Man Utd contract

He does not yet share team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic's cult status, but Paul Pogba's display on his comeback from injury showed his importance to Manchester United is second to none.

The enigmatic Swede has, however, been brought back into the fold after recovering from a serious knee injury and 1999 treble victor Cole - who operated alongside the likes of Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during his time with United - believes added competition will prove to be a help rather than a hindrance.

"When you play for such a club, the expectation is awesome and you always have to win", he told ESPN FC.

The 36-year-old scored 28 goals and laid on 10 assists in all competitions last season, so he's an excellent asset for Mourinho to have at his disposal. We will soon know when they play Manchester City.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Zlatan said: "I can talk of what Paul brings - big quality".

He was back on target in his latest outing against Newcastle, as part of a 4-1 win, with a timely return to form coinciding with the return of Ibrahimovic off the bench. They trained hard, they fought hard to be back so it's really positive to see them on the pitch and see them performing well.

"With Paul the same".

Stating that: "Football was waiting for you", it is clear to see the opinion that Maradona holds of Ibrahimovic, and like many, is delighted to see the enigmatic figure return to playing. He hates to be out of the football pitch, so it's been a great week for us in terms of injured players coming back.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has set his sights on winning everything this season with Manchester United following his return to action after a long spell on the sidelines.

"I think we can chase City, why is it not a possibility?" said the Swede, according to Goal. A top player who cost as much as he cost wouldn't just have to do that to be acclaimed. I do not know what will happen in the future, what happens happens.

And he went on to win one more Premier League title before quitting again in 2013.

"We need to have a deep squad if you want to compete until the end in every single trophy so I think the manager if happy with the squad". We have to trust each other. "I don't think Man United are contenders".
