Mourinho wants Ibrahimovic to influence teammates with experience

London, Aug 15 (IANS) Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s vast experience will help to inspire the club’s young players.

The 34-year-old Swedish striker made an impressive introduction to English football as he stormed a 25-yard strike past Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc to secure United a 3-1 win at Dean Court on Sunday, Xinhua reported.

With vast and successful experience in world football, Ibrahimovic soon appears to be a crucial figure in the Old Trafford dressing room.

“The first thing I can tell you is at his table for breakfast and for meals he is surrounded by the kids, the younger ones like (Marcus) Rashford and (Luke) Shaw,” Mourinho said.

“He knows what he can be for them as well as what he does with his performances,” he added.
