Marcus Rashford salutes Zlatan Ibrahimovic's influence both on and off the pitch

Marcus Rashford has underlined what a pivotal influence Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been both on and off the pitch for Manchester United this season.
The Swedish veteran, who arrived on a free transfer last summer, scored the 20th goal of an increasingly impressive season against Leicester on Sunday and 19-year-old Rashford has nothing but praise for his changing room mentor.
"I think it's the way his mentality works," Rashford told the club's official website.
"That is probably the biggest thing, not only for the young players but other players can take that from him as well.
"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."
Manchester United are two points adrift of Arsenal in fourth and one behind Liverpool in fifth ahead of Watford's visit to Old Trafford on Saturday, 11 February.
