As Wayne Rooney's influence wanes at Manchester United, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba are becoming the major influences at the club. 

Luckily for the Jose Mourinho, the club and their fans, Ibrahimovic and Pogba, seem to be comfortable enough with each other their let their personalities shine through. 

Speaking to Sky Sports after the 3-2 win over Southampton the duo brought the best out in each other after winning their first major honour with the club.

When asked what difference the Swede makes to the team, Pogba simply said; "That's why we bought him", before Ibrahimovic quickly interjected. 

"Bought him? I came for free! They bought you."

Ibrahimovic was asked if he was the best free transfer in Manchester United's history, he said he didn't know. "I got a call from Jose Mourinho. I have a good relationship with him. When he called - that's the reason I came. I'm super happy I came".

On the back of the win, when asked if something special is happening at the club, the Swede simply had four words to say.

"I came. That's special"

With a happy Ibrahimovic and Pogba at the club, Mourinho's side may see more glory this season.
