Aldridge: Ibrahimovic will be good for Man Utd kids

Liverpool legend John Aldridge feels Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the right signing for Manchester United.

The Swedish striker joined United on a free transfer from PSG and brings with him to Old Trafford 11 league titles and a plethora of other trophies and individual awards.

Aldo wrote in the Sunday World: “I still like to believe that football plays a part in a decision to sign a player and for sporting reasons, I believe Ibrahimovic is a great signing for United.

“Young lads like Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will learn from him and as Mourinho is targeting quick­fire success to rebuild United’s shattered aura, Zlatan will be a valuable addition.

“United have fallen off their perch (to use a phase coined by Alex Ferguson to describe Liverpool some years back) in spectacularly horrible fashion over the last three years.

“Now they are making some statements in the transfer mar­ket to confirm they want to get back to the top.”
