Marcus Rashford was in awe after watching Zlatan Ibrahimovic shine on his Manchester United debut.

The Swede needed just four minutes to score his first goal in a Red Devils shirt. Rashford was on the bench at the time - he would later replace his new teammate - and was mightily impressed with what he saw.

Ibrahimovic, 34, is viewed as Rashford’s mentor at Old Trafford; the player who can guide him on his path to becoming a top striker.

And clearly, the 18-year-old is inspired by the former Paris Saint-Germain forward.

Rashford described Ibrahimovic’s debut as “amazing” and admitted he can learn a lot from the well-travelled star.

“It's amazing,” Rashford replied when pressed on Ibrahimovic’s performance. “There's a possibility that we can all learn from him while he's here so we all need to take the chance.

"It's a massive help. Just being with him day in day out. It's helping me just seeing what he's like overall. Not just on the pitch, off the pitch as well.

"So, there's a lot to learn from him, so hopefully I can bring some of what he does into my own game."

If Rashford liked what he saw from Ibrahimovic, then the adulation was well and truly returned. The former Barcelona ace got up from his seat on the bench when Rashford produced a skilful run that led to United being awarded a second-half penalty.

This has all the makings of a very fruitful relationship.
