boss Jose Mourinho has warned Zlatan Ibrahimovic not to rush his comeback as he bids to make a return to action.

The veteran striker is on the road to recovery for the Red Devils after injuring his anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee during their Europa League quarter-final second leg win over Anderlecht last season.

That injury in April curtailed a prolific debut campaign with United which had yielded 28 goals and nine assists in 46 appearances.
