Manchester United fans react to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return to action

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Manchester United always felt like a match made in heaven. When the veteran forward went down with an injury in April, I thought that’d be the last we would see of him in a Red Devils jersey.

A lot has happened since then, including a new contract for the 36-year-old. Against Newcastle on Saturday, Ibrahimovic made his return from off the substitutes bench and what a moment it was.

The big man was greeted by a huge chorus of cheers as he took to the field, and in typical Zlatan fashion, his first attempt on goal was as acrobatic as you’d imagine from the former PSG man.

He brings a presence and influence to proceedings that United will only benefit from for the remainder of this season, and you get the feeling that Ibrahimovic has a lot of unfinished business to sort out before he departs from British shores.

As you’d imagine, the fans were absolutely loving his return to action (which came a lot earlier than I anticipated). Old Trafford was a special place against Newcastle United. Now, that atmosphere must be carried through a hectic winter period.
