Ibrahimovic can play No. 10 - Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has come out to say that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready to start for Manchester United against Leicester City and could play No 10.
Romelu Lukaku has played every minute of Manchester United's Premier League campaign so far, but started on the bench as Ibrahimovic made his first start since re-signing for the club, scoring in the 2-1 Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Bristol City.

Ibrahimovic, 36, suffered a serious knee injury in April, but Mourinho believes the Swede is ready to make his return to the United starting line-up when they take on Leicester on Saturday. Mourinho insists there is room for both players in the United team, even if it means Ibrahimovic playing as a No 10.

He said "Yes, he's an option, he played one hour, a bit more against Bristol City could be that he is ready to start the match, 90 minutes probably too much, depends on the match. I think he's ready to start. He played there last match in the period in the second half, when Lukaku played No 9 and Zlatan played No 10, I know that was a period where his energy was going down but obviously there are spaces where a No 10 plays, and where Ibrahimovic - even when he was No 9 - there are spaces where he feels comfortable to play, so yes why not"
