Manchester United wonderkid reveals Zlatan Ibrahimovic influence

Manchester United wonder-kid Marcus Rashford has stated that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played a role in his improvement this season, according to Inside United.

The 19-year-old striker revealed that he has already benefitted from having the experienced former Sweden international around.

Ibrahimovic made the move to Old Trafford from Paris Saint-Germain over the summer on a free transfer. The big Swede has hit the ground running with six goals in 11 appearances for Manchester United this season.

“It has been amazing,” Rasford told Inside United.

“We’ve got a lot of world-class players in the team, especially in the forwards like Zlatan and Wayne. For the young lads, we can’t ask for anything better.

“Zlatan is very easy to speak to and he’s easy to get along with.

“The way he approaches every game is about winning. He wants to win, regardless of the opponent, whether we are home or away, whatever the odds, he always wants to find a way to win.

“That mentality is what you need to be at the top level. That is where he is and where he has been for years.”

Rashford burst onto the stage at United under Louis van Gaal and earned a called up to the England’s Euro 2016 squad.

The 18-year-old has scored four goals in 9 games for United this season, including a last-minute winner against Hull City in the Premier League last month.

Manchester United take on their biter rivals Liverpool in their next league encounter on October 17. The Red Devils are currently in sixth place, five points behind leaders Manchester City.
