Ibrahimovic inspires Manchester United, says Fellaini

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has revealed that Ibrahimovic's arrival from PSG has boosted the team's winning mentality.

Fellaini, who joined United in 2013, won his second trophy at the club when United beat Southampton in the EFL cup final courtesy of a brace by Ibrahimovic.

“We can thank Zlatan because he’s there at the right moment, he scores goals.” The Belgian international said. “He’s a very important player. But everyone has been important in all the games.

“I have a good relationship with him. Everyone knows he’s a great player, that he works hard, that he has his character and that he always wants to win, you see that in training.

“During games, he’s the first one to want to win. And that desire to win is good for the team.”

35-year-old Ibrahimovic has accumulated 31 medals from his European travels with different clubs but has since admitted that he doesn’t know when he will call it an end, although a year or two more may still be in his books.

“What I bring, I bring experience,” Ibrahimovic said, “I bring my experience from other clubs I’ve been in, I bring what I have achieved, I bring the person I am.

“I am a lion, I will stop on top. I will not play one game by being Ibrahimovic and for what I did before. If I don’t perform, if I don’t bring results, I will not play. I will not be like other players, playing because they make a great career and name and they are still playing because they are who they are. I will play as long as I can bring results.”

Ibrahimovic is certainly doing that at the moment, having scored 26 goals in 43 matches for United.
