Rooney has similar presence to Ibrahimovic - Man Utd defender Shaw

Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are brilliant players to have at Manchester United.

That is the sentiment of young defender Luke Shaw who believes the experienced attacking pair are great role models for the rest of the playing group.

"To have two of them with that experience, that aura on the pitch, has helped and improved a lot of people on the training ground," he said.

United have made a near faultless start to the new Premier League season, winning all three matches while scoring six goals and conceding just one.

In those victories, Ibrahimovic has netted three times while Rooney has one goal and two assists.
