Premier League giants Manchester United have been hit with another injury problem as the Red Devils will now be without striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for 1 month.
The Swedish professional football star sustained the injury against Burnley and was left out of his side's 0-0 Premier League clash against Southampton on December 26, 2017.
Ibrahimovic now joins fellow striker Romelu Lukaku on the sidelines after the Belgian was taken off on a stretcher following a clash of heads with Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt.
Zlatan's latest injury is now expected to be a serious headache for Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho as the former Real Madrid gaffer will now have to fall on Marcus Rashford ahead of their next clash against Everton.
Marcus Rashford came on to replace Romelu Lukaku against Southampton when the like-for-like replacement would've been Ibrahimovic.
