Zlatan Ibrahimovic updated fans as he continues his recovery, but the focus turned to one of his teammates in the image he posted.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic took to Twitter on Tuesday to update his fans as he continues his Manchester United recovery.
The enigmatic Swede was pictured next to teammates Eric Bailly and David De Gea, the former of which seems to have established himself as chief mischief maker in the dressing room.
The Ivorian defender has been known to prank Ibrahimovic, filmed on one occasion kicking the striker up the backside before fleeing in fear of retaliation.
But the main focus of attention in Ibrahimovic's Tweet was the condition of Bailly's little finger, which appeared to be painfully bent out of shape.
Understandably, a number of fans questioned what had happened in the comments, although the center back did not seem overly concerned.

Bailly has been absent in recent weeks having picked up an injury on international duty; perhaps the misshaped finger was the result.
He also took to Twitter to post the same photo, adding the caption: "Feeling good after today’s training session. Too bad I’m surrounded by these guys."
Jose Mourinho gave an injury update on Bailly last week ahead of United's defeat against Huddersfield, but claimed there was no news on midfielders Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini.
"If you ask if [Paul Pogba] can play next week against Tottenham then I don’t know," he said. "I’m not telling you no, then he plays, and then you say I lied. I really don’t know. I expect Eric Bailly to be back next week. I cannot tell you about Fellaini or Pogba."
