The big Swede arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer and is the club’s leading scorer in the Premier League with 14 goals this season.
He’s won titles all over the world with Ajax, Juventus, Barcelona, both Milan clubs and PSG – and has been a leader at Old Trafford, driving the players around him to improve.
Speaing about his impact, Rashford explained why Ibrahimovic’s arrival has been so significant.
“For the young players to see his character and the way he approaches every game is invaluable,” he said. “Some players can’t bring that when they move clubs.
“We have to try to learn from him while he is here and take what we can from his game.
“Zlatan and Rooney are the two that stand out.
“I grew up watching Rooney play week in, week out at Old Trafford, so those are the two that you look at and try to emulate.”
Rashford has made 16 appearances for United in the Premier League this season, scoring three goals while playing out wide.
There are no doubts that his best role is down the middle but with Ibrahimovic scoring every week without fail, he’s been undroppable at Old Trafford.
Both parties have talked about extending his contract next season following his impressive start and Rashford has the opportunity to continue his learning from one of the best in the world before his time to lead the line approaches.
