Malmo Fans Send Priceless Get Well Soon Message to Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The Manchester United forward suffered a tear in both his ACL and PCL ligaments during a Europa League match last week meaning that, at 35, a full recovery to play at the elite level again looks unlikely.
However, the Malmo supporters suggested a novel way to circumvent such an issue during last night's 3-2 win over Djurgården.
They reckon Zlatan could easily still do a job in the Swedish top-flight with just the one good knee:

Zlatan started his glittering career with Malmo back in 1999, where he showcased his promise by scoring 16 goals during his first two professional seasons.
It's a nice idea, but we don't reckon he'll take up their offer of one-legged football back in his homeland, although we're willing to bet it made him smile from ear to ear.
Three-time FIFA player of the year Ronaldo has also dedicated a special Instagram post to the Manchester United forward.
"Ibra, my positive thinking is that you have a good recovery, and come back even stronger as you wish,"
"The force is in our will! You have my support, respect and admiration for facing the injury with this warrior spirit of overcoming adversity."
Ibra, meu pensamento positivo pra que você tenha uma boa recuperação, e volte ainda mais forte como deseja. A força ta na nossa vontade! Você tem o meu apoio, respeito e admiração por encarar a lesão com esse espírito guerreiro de superação às adversidades. Abs!

Get well soon, Zlatan.
