Jones: What Man Utd players really feel about Ibrahimovic departure...

Manchester United defender Phil Jones says Zlatan Ibrahimovic's departure will be a big blow to the dressing room.

The charismatic Swede saw his contract at Old Trafford mutually terminated last week.

After a long battle back to fitness following his serious knee injury, Ibrahimovic opted to quit the Premier League giants for the MLS after their exit from the Champions League.

LA Galaxy have snapped up the 36-year-old in the twilight of his career.

"Zlatan has been fantastic," Jones told United.no. "He's one of the best characters I've played with.

“We're going to miss him. He had a very good season last year and scored a lot of goals for us.

"Not only was he an important player on the pitch, he was also an important person in the dressing room.

“I wish him good luck. He's had a fantastic career."
