Ex-Man Utd striker Ibrahimovic: My initial problem with Rashford...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says former Manchester United teammate Paul Pogba can be the best in the world.

The LA Galaxy striker is urging Old Trafford chiefs to ensure they do everything in their power to get behind both Pogba and Marcus Rashford - because the one-time Stretford End favourite believes they both have the world at their feet.

"I think Paul Pogba has the potential to be the best player in the world in his position," he told the Mirror.

“He is a good guy, he trains hard, he listens, he wants to become better, he wants to win. He want to perform in every game.

"Things happening outside do not really bother him because when you are at that level, everyone will speak. Positive, negative, in between, everybody.

“Rashford is the future of Manchester United. In the beginning, I saw him more as an individual - now he is playing more for the collective. He is using his quality more for the team, not for himself only.

“He has big potential and a big future with United and the special thing is that he comes from the academy. I think he has no limits."
