Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba are both fit for Manchester United’s clash with Newcastle, manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed.
Ibrahimovic has not appeared for United since April after suffering a serious knee injury, though that did not deter the Red Devils from offering him a fresh one-year deal.
Pogba, meanwhile, has been missing since September after suffering a hamstring injury during United’s victory over Basel.
But the pair are both now ready to return alongside Marcos Rojo, who made his return from a knee injury during United’s Under-23 clash with Athletic Club.
Speaking to MUTV, Mourinho confirmed their availability, saying: “The players that stayed here and [were] recovering from injuries, even the ones that are recovering from big injuries, they are ready to play.”
When pushed on which specific individuals were fit, he responded: “Pogba, Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo.”
