Ronaldo & Ronaldinho pay awesome tributes to Zlatan Ibrahimovic

But Mourinho does not think City's season rides entirely on Thursday night's game, with United still in the hunt for a top four place and the Europa League.

After such a magnificent season for Manchester United, it's a real shame that Zlatan Ibrahimovic's campaign has been prematurely ended by an terrible injury.

United, however, have bounced back since the news of his long lay off after clinching progress to the Europa League semi-finals and earning a hard-fought 2-0 win at Burnley on Sunday.

Schweinsteiger left United to sign with Chicago last month, having struggled to force himself into Jose Mourinho's first-team plans at Old Trafford this season.

"Such players are certainly very important to the MLS".

The World Cup-winning Brazilian played alongside the 35-year-old during their time with Serie A giants AC Milan.

"And the reality is even in the first season of better years we won already and we have already the chance to do good things until the end of the season".

"If we manage to win the Europa League and in August to play the European Super Cup against the Champions League victor, it will be magnificent".

"But you also feel the club is not ready, not ready for this kind of expectation and you have to work more".

"I wanted to take this step to see how things are in America, and given everything I've done in the past, it was definitely the right reason to come here".

"He says that because I always say that about the next match".

Manchester United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has headed to the United States to undergo surgery on his knee injury in a bid to save his career, sources have told ESPN FC. "He's got a really, really good eye and that really impressed me".

"I can never demand more from him, I can just support and say "better days will arrive" but I am super happy with the approach of a super talented kid". I just try to be who I am.
