Former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji sung claims that the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic will immensely help the youngsters at the club.
The Swedish striker has moved to Old Trafford in the summer on a free transfer from Paris St Germain. Even though he still costs a lot in terms of wages, it is an extremely good deal for United in a summer where they have spent £ 150 million on three other players. Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have joined the José Mourinho revolution, which has kicked off in the summer.
Ibrahimovic has always been a great personality who has dominated over other players. However, his former teammates all hold of him in high regard since he has always put results over his own individual records. The immense talent within the 34-year-old may not have landed him a FIFA Ballon d’Or award, but he is widely regarded as a player who can perform at the highest level on a consistent basis. Ibrahimovic also has the quality of mentoring young players at the club. The presence of names like Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford at United makes it important for the club to have such a mentor figure.
Park Ji sung feels that Ibrahimovic will motivate the youngsters to achieve his level. “Yeah I think the club needs a big character like him.He has a lot of experience and then he can show his character in the dressing room and on the pitch.He can influence the players and particularly the young players. They can learn a lot from him and then show it on the pitch,” said Park Ji sung. Ibrahimovic has been immensely successful in his career winning league titles in four different countries across Europe.
