Jose Mourinho has revealed Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to be given more time off than the rest of Manchester United’s squad this season.
After scoring four goals in his first three matches for United, Ibrahimovic struggled to have as much of an impact in the 1-0 victory against Hull.
And the former PSG striker will now be granted an extended rest of the international break.
“If you’re 34 years of age, you need to rest,” Mourinho said.
“You can’t play 70 matches. The other guys who aren’t selected for their national teams, I give them two days off.
“For Zlatan, I give holidays a la carte. It depends on the situation. He’s playing every match, every minute.
“Four matches, he has played 360 minutes. Four days off for the big guy.”
