Manchester United legend Bryan Robson hailed "terrific" Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Swede's hat-trick helped the Reds beat Saint-Etienne in the Europa League on Thursday. Ibrahimovic has now scored 23 goals in 35 games in all competitions for United this season and Robson recognises how the former AC Milan and PSG striker's influence has help bring the most out of his team-mates at Old Trafford. "Ibrahimovic has been terrific. He has an unbelievable record whichever league he's played in," the England great said. "He's a personality and that's what he has brought to Man United. It's rubbed off on the other players and has improved their performance. "It's great that he is up to 20 goals already in all competitions and that's why he's been brought to the club."
