Pogba: Ibrahimovic Still As Before
Zlatan Ibrahimovic still seems to have a great influence for Manchester United, although he has been officially released by the club, according to Paul Pogba.
Where, the Swedish striker’s contract was not extended by United at the end of the 2016/2017 season, but he was still allowed to be at the club’s training base at Carrington, to recover from a knee injury he suffered last April.
And Pogba admits that Ibrahimovic is still pretty much involved in United’s squad, when recently he met the media ahead of the International Champions Cup match against Barcelona.
“Of course Zlatan is a leader, always a great leader, and he is a great leader because he is still in the team,” Pogba told local media.
“Even when he’s not playing, he’s still a leader off the pitch.”
United have so far done their pre-season pretty well. After a win over LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake and Manchester City, Jose Mourinho’s team also beat Real Madrid on penalties some time ago.
