MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Zlatan Ibrahimovic could have played his last game for Manchester United.

The English Premier League club announced on Saturday that Ibrahimovic sustained "significant knee ligament damage" on Thursday in the Europa League quarterfinal victory over Anderlecht.

United didn't put a timeframe on the Swedish striker's recovery.

The 35-year-old Ibrahimovic had been offered a new contract for next season that was yet to be accepted.

Defender Marcos Rojo is also facing a lengthy layoff with knee ligament damage.

United says "both players require specialist opinions over the coming days. Estimations of time to full recovery will only be possible once definitive treatment plans have been decided after these consultations."
