The Swede was quoted by Eurosport as saying: “All the jealous people who talk about him will swallow all of the words they have said about him. He will only improve and will get everyone behind him.”

Pogba was signed from Juventus for a world-record fee of £89.3 million but Ibrahimovic has stressed that there is room for improvement from the France international, who is still only 23 and wants to develop.

The Swede told SFR Sport: “My relationship with Paul is easy: I speak, he listens. Paul is a player with a lot of talent.

“Now, you have to be realistic: people are putting a lot of pressure on Paul. His transfer created a huge amount of buzz.

“I didn’t know Paul before and, now that I do, I can tell you he’s someone who works enormously. He really wants to improve and he has a super attitude. But you mustn’t forget he’s young. That’s all I can say.”
