Injured striker “Manchester United” Zlatan Ibrahimovic contributed to the victory in the final of the Europa League, despite not being able to go on the field. This was stated by the coach of “Manchester United” Jose Mourinho

Ibrahimovic led the boys submitting balls that represented the Stockholm football clubs. In Swedish, he asked them to slowly fetch balls for the players, “Ajax” and “Manchester United” at the end of the match, which Manchester United won with the score 2:0.

“I think what happened with Zlatan is a great injustice. For him, this evening could be really awesome. In the city where his statue, in a country where he was born, in a season in which he played such an important role… But he played an important role with the other guys on the bench. In the second half, he said balboas in Swedish, so they do not get too enthusiastic . We’ve qualified for the Champions League due to the fact that I won something, not took second or third place. It was a victory at the expense of pragmatism and principles”, – quotes Mourinho citing UEFA’s official website.

Ibrahimovic received a severe knee injury in the Champions League match against Anderlecht, which took place in April. According to preliminary estimates, it was out of action for 8-9 months.
The Swede himself said that he intends to return to the field after several weeks, but refused to specify which club he will play.
“Manchester United” has won the Europa League with the score 2:0.
