Marouane Fellaini: Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 'completely different' to his image

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho tells the media he'll provide a further update on the injuries of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo in a couple of days.
The FC crew weigh the potential impact on Man United if Zlatan Ibrahimovic misses an extended period of time.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic had to be removed from Man United's match with Anderlecht with an apparent right-leg injury.
Jose Mourinho says Marcus Rashford's mentality has helped the manager keep faith in him, even when he wasn't scoring.
BT Sport highlight: Marcus Rashford scored the winner in extra time as Manchester United beat Anderlecht to reach the Europa League semifinal.

Marouane Fellaini has told Sport Magazine that Manchester United teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic is "completely different" to his image as portrayed by the media and is only now getting the recognition he deserves.

Ibrahimovic, 35, joined United on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain and has scored 17 goals in 28 Premier League appearances to answer critics who doubted he could still have such an impact given his age.

Fellaini was given the opportunity to get to know him soon after his arrival at Old Trafford and is not surprised by the part he has played in United's success this season. 

"We came back from holiday at the same time and four of us trained away from the rest of the squad for a week," Fellaini said. "I knew him like everyone else, what he could say, what people said about him, but I immediately liked him.

"He's completely different to what is said about him. Ibra, he's class. Now that he's approaching the end of his career, people start understanding he plays a role, but he plays a good role, and he's a great pro."
