Ibrahimovic: “Lukaku has made United even stronger”

Manchester United 3 : 0 Saint-Etienne


Zlatan Ibrahimovic has admitted that Manchester United new player Romelu Lukaku has made the club “even stronger”.

“Yeah, yeah. I’m happy he came,” Ibrahimovic told ESPN.

“I think the team is much stronger this season than last season. Obviously we lost Rooney as a legend for the club but we took three new players and with these three new players the team is stronger.

“For the first year going, the team has been winning some trophies and learning the sacrifice you have to do to win the trophies and the mental part and that is what the coach brought to the team, the mental thing, and me as a player also.

“The pressure you put to win the objectives you want to win and signing Lukaku makes us even stronger because he has different quality from me as a striker and [Marcus] Rashford as a striker. He is a powerful guy and will bring some extra quality in the game.”
