Manchester United players wear pre-match tribute shirts for injured duo of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo

Manchester United players have worn training shirts with the names of defender Marcos Rojo and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic before their Premier League tie with Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

Both Rojo and Ibrahimovic suffered season-ending cruciate ligament tears during United's 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday evening, with both players set to face lengthy spells on the sidelines.

Ibrahimovic landed awkwardly when challenging for the ball during the final minutes of the second-half while Rojo was taken off on a stretcher after just 23 minutes.

United did not give a specific timeline for recovery for either player but said that both players will see specialists in the coming days.

Ibrahimovic was the club's top scorer this season with 28 goals.
