Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is praising striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for his winner mentality, and says he’s enjoying learning from the big Swede.
Ibrahimovic, 35, joined United over the summer, after spending four trophy-riddled seasons in France with Paris Saint-Germain. The talismanic striker has brought a wealth of experience to Old Trafford, and Rashford, 18, says it has been great to learn from the big stars like Ibrahimovic.
“It has been amazing,” Rashford said. “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.
“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.”
Rashford and Ibrahimovic has been the two most prolific scorers so far this season for United, with Zlatan notching six goals in all competitions and Rashford five. Rashford came off the bench for England in the 2-0 win over Malta on Saturday in the World Cup qualifiers.
