Marcus Rashford has taken to social media to pay tribute to Zlatan Ibrahimovic after his Manchester United exit.

The Red Devils confirmed on Thursday that they had terminated the veteran striker’s contract with immediate effect after his lack of playing time this season.

Ibrahimovic had made his return to action from a knee injury earlier in the season but suffered a setback and has not featured for the Red Devils since the 2-2 draw with Burnley on Boxing Day.

The 36-year-old is now a free agent and it remains to be seen what’s next for the veteran forward.

But Manchester United youngster Rashford was quick to pay tribute to Ibrahimovic after having trained and played with him over the last two years.

Rashford wrote on a post on Twitter: “Helped me become a better player for years to come @Ibra_official all the best ⚽.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action after the international break when they host Swansea City in the top flight at Old Trafford on Saturday 31 March.

The Red Devils are aiming to keep their place in third in the Premier League table as they bid to finish in the top four for the second season running under Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United will also look to end the campaign with a trophy, when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-finals.
