Rashford wants Ibrahimovic to extend Man United stay
Ibrahimovic’s future is in doubt after he suffered a knee ligament injury that has ended his season, and the 35-year-old has flown to the United States for surgery.
Rashford is set to benefit from the Swedish striker’s absence, getting a chance to play in his favoured striker’s role.
But the 19-year-old said he hoped Ibrahimovic’s time at United was not over because he has not finished learning from a man who has scored more than 400 goals during an 18-year career.
He said: “You will see the benefits in years to come. What I have learnt from him is irreplaceable.
“His influence, on the younger players especially, is fantastic. We want that to continue because he is making us into better players.
“Now, when I go to the left or right, I see it differently to how I pictured it last season.
“They are things I didn’t have naturally inside me. I didn’t feel uncomfortable in the wide role, but when something is different it takes a while to get used to it.
“For me, the development has been going great all the way through. Next season I think I will have come across most situations that are going to occur.”
