by Tanveer Arayan

Michael Carrick insists Manchester United’s new signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba are an excellent addition to the club.

Ibrahimovic scored twice against Southampton and helped Jose Mourinho’s side cruise to a comfortable 2-0 victory.

While Pogba made his long-awaited second debut at Man United after finalising his move from Juventus earlier in the month.

Speaking about their impact, Carrick claims they both have superb talent and have fit in well.

“Ibra is a really nice guy and humble around the changing room,” Carrick said.

“He has fitted in really well, which is nice as he’s made a real effort and you can see that.

“In terms of his quality and career, there’s not much more to be said about him. He has proved what he brings to teams.

“Paul is just Paul, the same lad that used to train with us when he was younger.

“He was a terrific talent and now he has turned into a terrific player and that is why he is here. I’m sure he is happy at everything getting settled so he can focus on playing for this great club.

“It’s easy to forget how young he still is. Most of his career is ahead of him, which is great for the club.”

Fans were excited for the new season when Ibrahimovic announced his move to Man United, but the signing of Pogba has kept all United supporterts on the edge of their seats.

It’s brilliant to see them both linking up well and building up a great relationship as they have a huge role to play under Mourinho as he looks to get the club back to it’s former glory days.
