Paul Scholes insists Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s arrival at Manchester United will be great for Marcus Rashford‘s future.

The Swede arrived at Old Trafford this summer and has gotten his Man United career off to the perfect start with four goals in four games.

With his arrival, Rashford is unlikely to be a first-choice striker for Man United, but made a big impact last weekend when he scored the late-winner against Hull City.

Speaking about his role, Scholes claims Rashford will be able to look up to Ibrahimovic this season.

“Ibra [Ibrahimovic] is great for young players, especially for someone like Rashford,” he said.

“Marcus will have a massive role to play this season and to have someone to look up to like that and teach him how to play the game properly, it’s great for his future.”

Mourinho described Ibrahimovic’s arrival as a gift to Rashford’s development and Scholes seems to be on the same page.

Rashford will have the opportunity to learn from one of the best strikers in the world and will no longer have the goal-scoring burden on his shoulders each week.

While he won’t receive as much game-time, Zlatan’s move will only be short-term as he enters the latter stages of his career, which will result in Rashford taking centre stage after learning from one of the best.
