Ibrahimovic has been out since April after suffering a knee ligament tear but is back under the supervision of United's medical team at Carrington.

The Portuguese also has better news of Marcus Rashford, who is fit in spite of coming off during the midweek Champions League win over Benfica with a knee injury.

"All young keepers make mistakes and it is how they react that will decide what kind of future they will have".

"I knew how good the goalkeeper was, I told the players that".

"It doesn't mean that I don't miss the players, it doesn't mean that I wouldn't like them to be here and available for us".

"Yes, is true I wanted four players in the summer and I think clearly everybody knows the position, maybe you know the player, didn't happen but we adapt to it and try the best we can", he said.

The manager came in for strong criticism because United had only one shot on target in Saturday's 0-0 draw away to Liverpool, and last night his team displayed little attacking flair in their 1-0 win against Benfica in Lisbon. "Yes, I do. But it is just a feeling". We went to Liverpool with two midfield players and nothing else.

BT Sport pundit Owen Hargreaves has told 90min that full back Luke Shaw needs to "take responsibility", if he is to make a success of his career at Old Trafford.

Despite winning, Mourinho's style has its detractors, including former Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy.

The injury saw Ibrahimovic released at the end of his one-year deal, only for the veteran's impressive rehabilitation to see United hand him a new contract in August. The flak he got was unwarranted but that is what he has to expect at Manchester United.

"He's working so, so, so, so hard but he's not to going be back in the next week or couple of weeks, let him take his time and be back when everyone feels it is the right moment".

Speaking on ITV's Champions League highlights show, Keane explained: "It will suit United".

"They are getting results, clean sheets and that gives you the foundations to go on and win trophies".
