Paul Pogba has branded Zlatan Ibrahimovic "like a big brother" and backed the experienced forward to help Manchester United 'reach their objectives'.

Both Pogba and Ibrahimovic made the move to Old Trafford in the summer, with Pogba re-joining his former club for a world-record fee, while Ibrahimovic swapped Paris Saint-Germain for the Premier League.

The duo's relationship has been apparent on social media since the start of the season and Pogba has revealed his huge respect for the 35-year-old, who has scored six times for the 20-time English champions this term.

"Ibrahimovic is like a big brother. He has a winning mentality, a great player. He's very important in Manchester, with him we can reach our objectives," The Metro quotes Pogba as saying.

Man United will travel to bitter rivals Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday night.
