Manchester United are set to face Italian giants AC Milan in a Europa League clash on Thursday.

Speaking ahead of the game, Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has hailed the quality of former United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swede spent 18 months at Old Trafford before leaving for the MLS, and McTominay has admitted that he was a huge personality in the Manchester United dressing room.

“[He was] ruthless. I’m not going to say too much more than that,” McTominay told UEFA.com.

“Good professional, worked hard, big, big presence in the dressing room in terms of his voice and the way that he is with people.

“He’s a ruthless guy in terms of the way he wants to win 24/7, if you’re not on the same page as him, then you won’t succeed under him, he’ll make life hard for you, so you’d better work hard at winning, otherwise it’ll be a tough time for you.

“I love guys like that in football. He’s obviously had a legendary career which is a real credit to him, and obviously to his family as well, so I have nothing but big praise for him.

“He’s a tough guy to be around sometimes, but that’s the positive – I can be [tough to be around] as well.”

Meanwhile, Zlatan won’t be available to play in this game due to injury.
