Ibrahimovic ruled out for rest of season

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is injured during a Europa League game against Anderlecht at Old Trafford

United's top scorer looked to have hyper-extended his knee and was in agony on the floor before he managed to make his way off the pitch.

"I want to wait and be optimistic but I am not", Mourinho told reporters, including the BBC, after the game.

In a crushing blow to Manchester United, star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been ruled out of the season.

Daley Blind stepped in alongside Bailly on Thursday but Mourinho also urged English defenders Jones and Smalling to speed up their return from injuries.

Having so impressively dispatched of Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday, United were made to sweat by Anderlecht after Henrikh Mkhitaryan's early strike was cancelled out by an equaliser from skipper Sofiane Hanni.

Manchester United beat Anderlecht to book their place in the Europa League semi-finals after bearing down Anderlecht's goal on numerous occasions, but not finishing off as many chances as they should have.

Mourinho said both players would be able to come back sooner than anticipated if they put their minds to it.

Mourinho recently said Jones and Smalling wouldn't be back until mid-May but with Rojo now out, the coach called on the England center backs to play through the pain barrier to help out the team.

Both were substituted with knee injuries during United's Europa League extra-time win over Anderlecht yesterday.

Unsurprisingly, United's late victory stimulated quite the reaction on social media, with many Red Devils supporters delighted to reach the four...

Despite having the various good chances to score again, Man United's supporters were made to wait until extra time for Marcus Rashford to hit the victor and end Anderlecht's run in the competition.

"Some players don't know what makes me trust a player but Marcus I trust", Mourinho told BT Sport. "After tomorrow then I can speak what I feel because I am a manager, not a doctor".

Roared on by their raucous away support, Anderlecht gave United several scares before finally succumbing in the 107th minute.

United find out their semi-final opponents in Friday's draw, with Ajax, Celta Vigo or Lyon lying in wait.
