Manchester United newboy Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes Wayne Rooney is the perfect partner and hopes they can bring the club success.
The Swede scored on his debut for United in a friendly against Galatasaray last week and could make his first appearance at Old Trafford tonight in Rooney’s testimonial against Everton.
Jose Mourinho is keeping his cards close to his chest on team selection ahead of next season but the former PSG man is expected to lead the line next to Rooney.
Ibrahimovic thinks he will work well with the club captain and has praised his work ethic which he feels can help propel the club back up to the top of the Premier League.
“I think every big player can work with other big players. That’s not a problem,” Ibrahimovic said.
“We are 11 players, not two players on the pitch. It’s up to the coach what he wants but, with him, I see no problems. Only success.
“I said many years ago the perfect partner for a striker is Wayne Rooney. He works not only for himself but for the striker and the whole team.
“I’m absolutely happy to be one of the guys beside him.”
Ibrahimovic ended last term as the top scorer in Ligue 1 and punters using their free bet may want to back him to take the golden boot in his debut Premier League campaign.
