Video: Zlatan Ibrahimovic Scores Belting Free-Kick on First Start For 8 Months

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to action this evening after eight months out with a serious knee injury – and he gave the suppporters what they wanted by scoring a belting free-kick.

The 36-year-old Swedish superstar looked like his career at the elite level might well be over after he tore his ACL in a Europa League match against Anderlecht eight months ago to the very day, but there’s very few players in world football like Zlatan.

He’s fought hard and worked tirelessly in the gym to get back to his best and he was finally rewarded with his first start of the season tonight in the Carabao Cup against Bristol City.

With the Championship high-flyers winning 1-0 in the second-half, United needed a hero – and you’ll never guess who popped up:

What a goal, eh?

He might be in his mid 30s but Ibrahimovic definitely still knows how to strike a football, eh?
