Zlat's the way to do it: Jose

By Nick Purewal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's advancing years will not stop the powerful Sweden striker handing Manchester United the passport to success on all fronts, according to Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho hailed Ibrahimovic (below) as a star "at the top of his qualities" after the 34-year-old sealed United's 3-1 Premier League victory over Bournemouth with a 20-yard strike.

Mourinho insisted Ibrahimovic has not only the leadership qualities to mentor Old Trafford's youngsters but also the razor-sharp edge to justify his talismanic role this term.

"The first thing I can tell you is that his table for breakfast and his table for meals, he is surrounded by the young ones, surrounded by the kids," said Mourinho.

"Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford, these are the guys that are with him on the table. So he knows what he can be for them."
