He’s back in town: United star trains at Carrington ahead of Liverpool clash

Zlatan Ibrahimovic arrived with Manchester United’s team-mates at training on Wednesday as Jose Mourinho’s men prepare for their crunch Premier League clash with Liverpool on Saturday.

 The Swede hasn’t spent much time at the club’s training base while recovering from knee ligament damage suffered in April against Anderlecht. Ibrahimovic was not due to return to action before January but he’s pushing for a shock comeback early in December, with the Arsenal match on December 2 his ideal first team return date. 

The 36-year-old has largely worked on his recovery alone, although he was snapped alongside club legend Andy Cole working out in Carrington.

 And he has made another appearance at the club’s base in the build-up to trip to Anfield, according to Manchester Evening News. Of course, Ibrahimovic will not feature against Liverpool and he is yet to even return to full training but perhaps he offered some pearls of wisdom to the squad.
