Ibrahimovic joins lengthening injury list at Man United

"I am exhausted. I imagine the players are more exhausted than me".
"But from that moment we were in control and it was just a question of scoring and not conceding".
Both were substituted with knee injuries during United's Europa League extra-time win over Anderlecht yesterday.
"I don't want to go in that direction", the manager replied.
Mourinho asked for Chris Smalling, who also has a knee problem, and Phil Jones, who is nursing a toe injury, to step up for the team's cause.
Meanwhile, ex-United physio Matty Radcliffe told sundayworld.com that Ibrahimovic will be fortunate to escape a lengthy spell on the sidelines, with an injury that looks set to sideline the 35-year-old striker for an extended period. "Unfortunately the result isn't so good", said the Belgians' coach Rene Weiler.
"Now we need absolutely everyone, now I even have to think that Axel Tuanzebe, has to go to the under something World Cup in Korea, because maybe Axel has to come now, now we need everyone".
"We're in trouble. We're in trouble", Mourinho said.
United now lie fifth in the Premier League table, four points behind fourth-place Manchester City, with a game in hand.
REAL Madrid will face Atletico Madrid - who knocked out Leicester City earlier this week - in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
"I always trust the players with special mentality".
With United's hopes of finishing in the top four diminishing, the Europa League must surely become their priority between now and the end of term.
We're accustomed to seeing Marcus Rashford grab the headlines in dramatic fashion - very few footballers announced themselves to the world in the way that the England global did last season - but despite his reputation for heroics, Manchester United fans were left with no doubt about who their saviour was yet again.
"No. Nicky Butt [United's head of Academy] doesn't pick him to play that game".
"He could by age, but when you reach a certain level, and you reach that level for a long time, I don't think it makes sense".
But Mourinho admitted "the power" is in the Football Association's hands over the decision.
