Manchester United's Marcus Rashford: Zlatan Ibrahimovic is easy to talk to

Marcus Rashford says he and other young United players are learning from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has told Inside United magazine that teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic is "easy to get along with" and does not settle for anything else than victory.

England international Rashford, 18, said he was benefiting from the experience of 35-year-old former Sweden captain Ibrahimovic.

He said: "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, currently with the England senior squad, said young United players were being helped by the wealth of experienced stars around them.

"It has been amazing," he added. "We've got a lot of world-class players in the team, especially in the forwards like Zlatan and Wayne [Rooney].

"For the young lads, we can't ask for anything better. The likes of me, Anthony [Martial] and Jesse [Lingard] -- watching these forwards play and how they train, their mentality, is so important."
