Marcus Rashford explains how new Man United signing is helping him

Marcus Rashford says he is relishing learning from Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Manchester United this season

Marcus Rashford has heaped praise on Zlatan Ibrahimovic for being a role model to Manchester United’s younger players.

The Swedish striker has made a strong start to life at Old Trafford following his move to the Premier League club on a free transfer in the summer.

The 35-year-old joined the Red Devils for free after he was allowed to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season and has already scored six goals in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s men this season.

Rashford is currently getting to grips with life as a regular in the Manchester United first team following his promotion under Louis van Gaal last season.

And the teenage striker admits that he could not ask for a better team-mate to learn from than veteran forward Ibrahimovic.

Speaking in an interview with Inside United, Rashford said: “You can’t ask for more.

“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.”
