Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has spoken out about his special connection with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The pair arrived at Old Trafford in the summer and have had a spectacular impact under Jose Mourinho in the Premier League.

Pogba and Ibrahimovic have built up a brilliant friendship on and off the pitch and there’s no doubting their role in the squad.

Speaking about Zlatan, Pogba was full of praise for the Swede’s ability.

“We have been playing together for some time now so we have this connection and combinations on the pitch,” he said.

“I do not know why Zlatan and I work so well together. Like I said before, he is just someone I can find. He has everything. He is a complete striker – you can give him the ball, he can hold the ball up, he can find space, he has great skills, he is good with his head, he can finish, he is big and strong, so I try to find him.

“I like the way he plays and I think he likes the way I play as well. It is just a connection on the pitch, it is not like we practised it in training, it just happens.”

They’ve both played a big role in United’s recent unbeaten run and will be relishing the opportunity to extend the streak against Liverpool on Sunday.

With Ibrahimovic left sidelined with an illness, hopes are he’ll be fit and ready to guide the side forward, slotting back into the starting XI in front of Pogba.
