Cape Town - Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford admits he would like to emulate Zlatan Ibrahimovic for his mentality and success.

Rashford, who has been kept out of starting lineup in his favoured striking role by the Swede, conceded he's been in awe of the football greats he is surrounded by at United, such as Wayne Rooney and Ibrahimovic, and doesn't mind playing out wide while he learns from the veterans.

"It has been amazing. We've got a lot of world-class players in the team, especially in the forwards like Zlatan and Wayne," the 18-year-old told Inside United.

"For the young lads, we can't ask for anything better.

"Zlatan is very easy to speak to and he's easy to get along with.

"The way he approaches every game is about winning. He wants to win, regardless of the opponent, whether we are home or away, whatever the odds, he always wants to find a way to win.

"That mentality is what you need to be at the top level. That is where he is and where he has been for years."
