Manchester United Football Club made a bold move to bring in Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, with Jose Mourinho looking to send out a bold message to our Premier League rivals. Although Ibrahimovic is a goal-machine, that not the only positive thing he’ll bring to the club.
His influence on his fellow professionals is huge, and there aren’t many players who can bring such a positive vibe to a dressing room as well as on the football field.
Ibrahimovic made his debut yesterday, and scored a stuning goal. In the second half he was replaced on the field by Marcus Rashford who also had an excellent game. He then had his say on Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the game.
“We can definitely all learn from him while he is here, so we all need to take that chance,” Rashford told ManUtd.com. “It’s a massive help to be with him every day and it’s great to see what he is like on and off the pitch. There is a lot to learn from him and hopefully I can bring some of his game into mine.”
The impact that a stellar signing like Ibrahimovic will have on players like Rashford in particular is huge. Even if the Swede only stays at Old Trafford for just twelve months, Rashford will learn so much from him and become a better player purely based on that. It can only be a good thing.
