It was a brilliant day for Manchester United on Saturday.

The Red Devils' return to Premier League action was littered with positive and none more prominent than the return of last season's cult hero, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish striker finally completed his rehabilitation from a serious injury and came on late in the second half, much to the delight of the Old Trafford faithful.

Jose Mourinho's side ran out 4-1 winner over Newcastle, producing a stunning comeback after Dwight Gayle have the visitors a surprise early lead.

Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku got the goals to put United back into second place, eight point short of Manchester City.

Zlatan's return was the big talking point after the game, with the likes of Gary Lineker showing their appreciation on Twitter and Mourinho visibly overjoyed at his return in the post-match interview.


And the Swede himself got a bit emotional as after the fixture, he took to social media to post a truly humbling message to those who supported him through his injury ordeal.

The message thanked five people and read: "Thanks to everybody that stod by my side for the last months.Thanks to my family,coach,teammates,Mino,DarioFort,Dahan,DrFu,DrVolker,Manutd and the most important my fanz.This was not a one man work without all of you I would not be playing fotball today Thank you and I ❤️ you."

Aside from the suspect grammar, Zlatan has really showed a kind side to himself here, one which will no doubt endear him to a lot more people.


One of the first things he done back on the Old Trafford turf was attempt something that was so classic Zlatan.

The ball was put into the box and in typical fashion, he attempted a bicycle kick, which almost came off

The Premier League is just better off with him in it, isn't it?

Mourinho will likely be buoyed by the return of a crucial member of his squad, one who will be critical to their form going into the hectic Christmas schedule.

Don't be surprised if he still ends up north of 20 goals in 2017/18.
