Zlatan Ibrahimovic: I joined Man United for a new challenge

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: I joined Man United for a new challenge

The Spaniard helped United book their place in the last eight with a goal in the 1-0 win over Rostov on Thursday night.

Juan Mata's goal in the second leg of their last 16 clash with FC Rostov at Old Trafford on Thursday night, after drawing 1-1 at Russian Federation, ensured their progress in the competition.

United had previously played on Monday, losing 1-0 at Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals after going down to 10 men, and travel to Middlesbrough in the Premier League on Sunday.

Those comments followed an interview with BT Sport at the conclusion of the match in which the Portuguese boss said his side had many "enemies" in which they had to contend with.

"We have to do everything to fight them but we also have our own quality, and we can play football so who knows". I don't ask for me, I ask for everyone. "We can not even sleep on Sunday morning because we have to wake up at seven o'clock to eat and go to the game". In Portugal, every team that plays in Europe they play on the next Monday.

Mourinho, who won three league titles in two spells with Chelsea, also questioned the club's transfer business under his predecessor Louis van Gaal, who sold strikers Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez as well as winger Angel di Maria. "I think we are".

Mourinho did not see anything amusing about the incident and said that his players, particularly Pogba, were paying the price for scheduling problems.

"But I think you can do that and just have a little finger, a little touch". It's very hard for my players to have injuries.

He was analysed on the side of the pitch before the decision was made to let him sit out the rest of the match, and it seems a smart one as he's already back in selection.

"But today the players have trained well and we look forward to the weekend".

United head coach Jose Mourinho expected Pogba to be sidelined around three weeks, forcing him to withdraw from the clash with Middlesbrough in the EPL, in addition to his French national duties.

90'+4 SAVE! Romero makes a BRILLIANT save with the very last touch of the game! He was feeling something in the first half and in the second half he immediately felt he couldn't carry on.

"Next year? The situation is I've signed here for a year with an option for another year". I'm young, I need to play.

The Armenian saw the Swede's run and pushed a low cross towards him.
