Paul Pogba insists Zlatan Ibrahimovic is his big brother in the dressing room at Manchester United.

The Frenchman become the world’s most expensive player following his £89million move from Juventus over the summer, but he’s gotten off to a slow start at Old Trafford.

He has been heavily criticised after struggling to make an impact in some games and missing chances during the draw over Stoke.

Speaking about Zlatan, Pogba claims with his help the club can reach their objectives.

“Jose Mourinho is a great coach, it’s a good thing for me,” he said.

“I have a lot to learn from him.

“Ibrahimovic is like a big brother. He has a winning mentality, a great player. He’s very important in Manchester, with him we can reach our objectives.”

Since his arrival at the club fans have witnessed a blossoming friendship between Pogba and the big Swede.

Whether it’s dressing room banter, impersonations or even social media posts, the pair seem to always be by each others side.

Pogba has gotten off to shaky start at Old Trafford, but it’ll only improve over time and once he does find his feet, he’ll be tearing his opponents to shreds.
