Marcus Rashford opens up about new Man United signing

Marcus Rashford heaps praise on Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of Manchester United's trip to Liverpool

Marcus Rashford has heaped praise on Zlatan Ibrahimovic for setting a perfect example for Manchester United’s younger players at Old Trafford.

The Swedish striker is currently getting to grips with life in the Premier League after moving to Old Trafford on a free transfer during the summer.

Ibrahimovic has made a strong start to life at United since moving to England and has already scored six goals in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s men.

At 35 years old, Ibrahimovic has plenty of experience and advice to pass down to his younger team-mates.

And Rashford says that he has been learning a lot from the likes of Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney in recent weeks.

Speaking in an interview with United Review, Rashford said: “It has been amazing.

“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.

“The likes of me, Anthony and Jesse – watching these forwards play and how they train, their mentality, is so important.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.
