Manchester United midfielder, Ander Herrera, says that team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic sets the standard for the squad on a daily basis.
Since his arrival from PSG, Ibrahimovic has had a major impact at Old Trafford, scoring four goals in the Premier League so far. Ander Herrera- who has recently had a well deserved call up by Spain for the first time on Monday night- says the former Swedish striker is an example to every member of the squad on and off the pitch.
“He’s unbelievable. He doesn’t lose one training session,” the midfielder told the club’s official website. “He trains every day at his best trying tp get everyone to their highest level,” Herrera went on to say “if you see a game and you didn’t know Zlatan’s age you could think he was only 28 or 29 and that is good for us.”
Ibrahimovic celebrated his 35th birthday on Monday and despite being in the latter part of his career, he has already scored six goals in total for United this season. This has included four goals in the Premier League, one in the Europa League and one in the Community Shield. Despite this, Ibrahimovic is the second oldest player in the United squad, only two months younger than midfielder Michael Carrick.
Fitter than ever
The Swede has featured in all 11 matches so far this season, starting every game apart from his two appearances off the bench against Feyenoord and EFL Cup game against Northampton.
