Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who currently plays for Italian club AC Milan, has hailed Anthony Elanga as a great talent.

Under Ralf Rangnick, Elanga has become an important player for Manchester United and was called up to the latest Sweden squad.

Ibrahimovic told SVT: “A great talent, we are proud and happy that he comes from Sweden. That he can represent Sweden now makes it even bigger.

“He has all the future ahead of him, and if he continues just as he has done, it looks positive. It’s just fighting, never being content, striving for more. How much he can develop depends on him.”

Elanga has scored three goals for Manchester United despite making just six starts for the club in all competitions.
