When asked about things back at United and Zlatan's new deal, after the match in Liege, the 62-time Belgian worldwide said the Reds' squad would benefit from having Ibrahimovic's personality around the dressing room.

The striker, 35, agreed a deal to rejoin the club last month but is still recovering from a knee-ligament injury sustained in April and is not expected to play again this year.

The Red Devils are back in Europe's top competition after winning the Europa League last season.

The Belgium global has already scored four goals in four appearances for the 20-time English champions, which includes three goals in the Premier League.

He is working with Mourinho, who sold him to Everton while being Chelsea manager a few years ago, and Lukaku admits that the Manchester United boss played a key role in convincing him. "We need his personality", Lukaku said.

Paul Merson has credited Manchester United signing Romelu Lukaku with getting the best out of Henrikh Mkhitaryan this season, The Sport Review says.

"Things are going really well for me at United, the pre-season was good and it helped knowing a lot of the players before arriving", the striker stressed.

Legendary Reds boss Sir Alex Ferguson holds the all-time record with 194 games, while Mourinho - who has won the Champions League with Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010 - has managed 133 matches in Europe's elite tournament to date.

His inclusion in the club's 25-man Champions League squad suggests his return could now be very near.

"It's a great return, 10 goals, none conceded, creating chances, scoring goals, looks like we're playing half decent football".
