Paul Pogba has talked up his partnership with Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The France international came off the bench to help Jose Mourinho’s side to ease to a 2-1 win against Blackburn Rovers in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford cancelled out Danny Graham’s opener with a close-range finish after Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s superb pass.
Mourinho turned to two of his summer signings – Ibrahimovic and Pogba – with the FA Cup clash in the balance with 30 minutes to go at Ewood Park.
And Pogba teed up Ibrahimovic to score his fourth goal in two games to help Manchester United secure their place in the quarter-final draw.
Speaking to BT Sport after Manchester United’s 2-1 win against Blackburn, Pogba was quick to open up about his blossoming understanding with Ibrahimovic.
“I try to help the team as much as possible. When I see Zlatan’s movement I know I can get the ball to him,” Pogba said.
Manchester United will take on Chelsea for a place in the FA Cup semi-final draw.
The Red Devils lost 4-0 to Chelsea in the Premier League earlier this season.
