Manchester United superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims he is not human. And he might be right.

First the 35-year-old Swede led Man U with 28 goals in all competitions this season, finishing 7th in the Premiere League with 17. Now he’s already training just one month after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL.

One month!

Ibrahimovic tore his ACL when he landed awkwardly while challenging for a loose ball during a Europa League game against Anderlecht on April 20. But, amazingly, on May 31 he posted a video on Instagram that shows him running in place and volleying a ball to a partner.

The caption? “The touch will never disappear. Lions don’t recover like humans.”

Take a look:

Zlatan will become a free agent on July 1, when his one year deal with Manchester United expires. If teams were worried about signing a 35-year-old with a bum knee, they probably aren’t now. Clearly this man is a freak of nature.
