Racking up three goals in two Premier League starts, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made an immediate impact on the pitch since arriving at Manchester United this summer.
His impact behind the scenes has also been well documented, with reports noting how the younger players in the United squad are already looking up to the former Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSG striker.
One player who seems to have struck up a particularly good working relationship with Ibrahimovic is last year's breakout striker, Marcus Rashford. That's after a report from The Sun today revealed how the pair, alongside two other teammates, are staying behind after United training to help improve the youngster's game.

Apparently, while most of Jose Mourinho's first team squad depart United's Carrington training pitches after sessions, Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard have stayed out on the field to learn from their Swedish teammate.
A source told The Sun:
"Zlatan has been staying behind at end of regular training sessions working on his shooting and free-kicks.

“He has also been giving Rashford, Martial and Lingard finishing tips as well. He is keen to help the younger players.
“Zlatan looks to be someone who will be good at coaching the youngsters. He has a natural ability to teach and wants to help them improve.
“These sessions have been helping Rashford a lot, as he is only just starting out in what is going to be a long career for him.”
The news will only boost Ibrahimovic's already glowing reputation amongst United fans and, given the veteran's prolific goalscoring record throughout his career, it can only bode well for Rashford and the Red Devils' other young striker moving forward.
Mourinho and co. will also be delighted to see that Rashford has responded so well to being handed few first team opportunities so far this season.
The 19-year-old is yet to feature in the Premier League this year, and is clearly behind the likes of Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney in the pecking order just now.
Rather than take the hump, however, the Manchester-born striker has doubled down and sought advice from the very man who has taken his place in the starting lineup.
There certainly seems to be a good spirit within the United camp just now, and Ibrahimovic has played his part in that since arriving on a free transfer this summer.
Fans of the Old Trafford club will be hoping that the club is reaping the rewards from his post-training masterclasses for years to come.
