Manchester united boss Jose Mourinho has raised concerns on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s age, granting him an extended holiday during international break.

Ibrahimovic who joined the Red Devils for free from Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer has started all and played every minute of all four United games so far this season, Ibra has been allowed extra-time off to rest for the next round of premier league fixtures.

Jose Mourinho said: If you’re 34 years of age, you need to rest,’ ‘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.’

Although, Zlatan retired from international football at the end of the Euro 2016 tournament but his age may be a major concern for the Red Devils as he has been pivotal to the victories in the league scoring in his first two league games and a community shield against Leicester city.
