Marcus Rashford says Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s ability to lift players’ spirits in the dressing room has been a big helping factor at Manchester United this season.

The veteran Swedish forward has hit the ground running in the Premier League following his transfer to the club on a free from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Ibrahimovic has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s men to quash any doubts about his ability to cut it at the top level during the latter stages of his career.

The 35-year-old has been making a big contribution on the pitch for the Red Devils as they chase a top-four finish this season.

But Rashford believes that Ibrahimovic has been making an equally important contribution away from the pitch since his arrival at Old Trafford last summer.

Speaking to Manchester United’s website, Rashford said: “It’s good for the dressing room. Sometimes, if we’re down, he can pick us back up and, when we’re up, he keeps us up.

“Bringing in that type of player, it has been key.”
