He said in a post-game press conference that the Lions' gameplay in the first half was what he expected to see in future games.
The superstar forward, who moved from Paris Saint Germain earlier in the summer, was finally unleashed by new manager Jose Mourinho in Gothenburg in his native Sweden. Manchester United team captain Wayne Rooney in an interview with the Daily Mail had this to say about Pogba: "I hope he is going to want to return to United and prove he's a top-class player".
"I had seen him on TV but to see him up close in training and then start playing with him, you realise that the boy is a bit special". But he had great ability, some of the things he could do, and he's gone up a level since he left us.
After missing the first two pre-season outings, Mourinho handed goalkeeper David De Gea, defender Matteo Darmian, midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin, Marouane Fellaini and forwards Anthony Martial, Rooney and Ibrahimovic pre-season debuts under his guidance. Given his thumbs up on the signing Rooney is not developing an understanding on the pitch with the confident Swede.
As one of the biggest name in world football, Ibrahimovic is known for his spectacular goals like that which he scored yesterday, as well as the overhead kick against England.
"You can look and it seems like he has been playing here many years already and the same with the other guys we've signed".
"I think it's good to have such competition within the squad because there are a lot of good players for every position in a big team".
"We have a game against Leicester next week (Community Shield) and we have the Premier League in a couple of weeks".
Schweinsteiger's fall from grace at United has been further compounded after it was confirmed he had been told to turn out for the reserve team by Mourinho. "There's no need to rush into anything - I'm taking my time, taking it steady".
"Sir Alex was really clever like that". Equally unsurprising was Jose Mourinho's desire to bring Willian to Manchester United. It shows how good a player he is, being at Manchester United for [over] 10 years. They maintain that they are a UEFA Champions League club and that they are better than United.
