Despite the expiring of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract at the end of last season, Paul Pogba insists that he is still a “leader” for Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho has said “the door is still open” for Ibrahimovic to play again for United his coming season.
During United’s 2-1 Europa League win over Anderlecht in April, the 35-year old sustained “significant knee ligament damage”. Although he is not expected to be fit until the Christmas period, Pogba is adamant the Swede still plays a big role at Old Trafford.
Pogba said, “Obviously, Zlatan is a leader, always a big leader, and he’s a big leader because he’s still in the team. Even though he’s not playing he’s a leader outside of the pitch.
“I’ve been playing for one season, I came here to hopefully be a leader in the team. That’s not the objective but that’s how you should be. I’ve been here, we won, and you want to grow up as a player and a leader as well. I can learn from him, from [Michael] Carrick, all the other players and become a leader.”
