Rashford: Zlatan drives us

Marcus Rashford says Zlatan Ibrahimovic's star power has been key to Manchester United's increasing success this season.

The Swedish striker has led by example with 15 goals in 23 Premier League appearances in his first season in English football.

After struggling earlier in the season, United are now on a run of 15 matches unbeaten in the league.

But Rashford says more than his goals, it is the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain's positive mentality that drives him and their United teammates.

When asked what it was that he admired most about his strike partner, the young Englishman told the club's official website: "I think it's the way his mentality works. 

"That is probably the biggest thing, not only for the young players but other players can take that from him as well."

He added: "In fact, that is definitely the main thing. It’s good for the dressing room. 

"Sometimes, if we’re down, he can pick us back up and, when we’re up, he keeps us up. Bringing in that type of player, it has been key."

The 19-year-old Rashford, has netted three league goals, two FA Cup goals and one EFL Cup goal this term.
