Man Utd striker Ibrahimovic convinced of successful Rooney partnership

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is confident forming an exciting partnership with Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.

The Swedish superstar was paired with Rooney in attack for the first time in Saturday’s 5-2 win over Galatasaray – and the duo got off to a storming start with both men on the scoresheet.

Ibra told MUTV: “I think every big player can work with other big players.

“That’s not a problem. 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.”
