Man United team news: Jose Mourinho makes definitive decision on Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Jose Mourinho has delivered some Man United team news ahead of Thursday’s Europa League home game against FC Zorya Luhansk.

Having been used pretty much non-stop in the Premier League this season, one might have thought that Mourinho would give Zlatan Ibrahimovic the night off.

However, Mourinho confirmed on Wednesday that the 34-year-old would start against Luhansk, while revealing that fellow attacker Anthony Martial was also available.

Ibrahimovic, 34, was given a holiday this week as he took a brief trip to Milan.

Mourinho has perhaps opted to play Ibrahimovic because United’s defeat to Feyenoord in round one has made this match something of a must-win event.

Zlatan has been one of United’s star men so far this season, scoring five goals in seven starts following his free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

While United were losing to Feyenoord last month, Zorya were holding Fenerbahce to a 1-1 draw.

United play Fenerbahce back to back in matchweeks three and four.
