Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a horrific knee injury right at the death in normal time against Anderlecht on Thursday.
The Manchester United striker landed awkwardly, with his right leg completely outstretched, after attempting to win a header as the Old Trafford outfit searched for a winner to send them through to the Europa League semi-finals.
The Swedish forward, who was in agony on the floor in the immediate aftermath, was replaced in extra-time by France international Anthony Martial as the hosts went on to win 2-1 on the night and 3-2 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.
Despite a stretcher being called onto the pitch on Thursday night, the 35-year-old managed to hobble off.
And he wasn’t the only United player to suffer an injury against the Belgium side. Marcos Rojo was carried off on a stretcher after he picked up a left knee injury during the first half.
United went on to win 2-1 thanks to a Marcus Rashford goal in extra-time after Henrikh Mkhitaryan put the hosts ahead early in the first-half.
Following the match, Jose Mourinho was downbeat about the injuries, saying: ‘I don’t think they are easy injuries but I prefer to wait until all of the tests are done, then speak what I feel but I cannot do that as I am the manager and not a doctor.
