The forward was called undroppable by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, and agrees with his manager's claim that he does not need a break.

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has refuted suggestions that he needs a rest, claiming he is 'like a 20-year-old boy."

The 35-year-old netted his ninth goal in nine games to give the Red Devils the lead against West Brom on Saturday evening.

However, before the game, it was suggested that Jose Mourinho might drop the Sweden international to avoid the 35-year-old burning out.

Mourinho said that it would impossible to drop Ibrahimovic, calling him a "great example" for his United team-mates.

The striker agreed with his manager's decision, stating that he is happy to continue starting for the Red Devils.

"I'm here. I'm here to play. I want to play," Ibrahimovic told BT. 

"As a football player you get blind sometimes because you have to listen to your body.

"In my mind, I'm fresh. I'm like a 20-year-old boy. I feel fresh, I feel good and I'll keep going.

"As long as he needs me and the team needs me I'm here."
