Morgan Schneiderlin comments on new Man United signing

Morgan Schneiderlin has his say on new Manchester United signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already shown glimpses of his quality since his arrival at Manchester United.

The Swedish forward scored his first goal for United since arriving at the club over the weekend as he netted the opener in the 5-2 win over Galatasaray on Saturday night.

Ibrahimovic became Jose Mourinho’s second summer signing earlier in the summer as he joined on a free transfer following the Portuguese coach’s appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.

And midfielder Schneiderlin admits that he has already been impressed by what he has seen from Ibrahimovic since his return to the club for pre-season training.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Schneiderlin said: “Zlatan came into the dressing room and he already had an aura.

“He has this thing about him, it is a presence and a stature.

“He is tall, powerful and, on the training pitch, you can see he has a lot of quality. Of course, this is just his first week back as well so he will continue progressing physically.

“But you can see his touch, his movement and his way of seeing football is brilliant so this season I think he will give us something great.”

United finished fifth in the Premier League last season under Louis van Gaal and won the FA Cup.
