Super-agent Mino Raiola revealed on Monday night that his player had successfully gone under the knife and that the injury would not be ‘career-ending’.

Ibrahimovic injured ligaments in his knee during the Europa League tie against Anderlecht which sparked fears the 35-year-old’s playing career was over.

But the attacker has had surgery in America and took to Instagram to share a snap and assure his fans he was on the mend.

‘Fixed, done and stronger,’ he said.

‘Once again thank you for the support.

‘We will enjoy my game together soon.’

The Swans rescued a point late in the game after United went ahead thanks to a controversial penalty awarded for United.

Ibrahimovic is still United’s top goal scorer this season by some distance after racking up 28 goals in his debut campaign as a Red Devil.
