Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes his former team-mate Paul Pogba has silenced his critics with his displays at the World Cup.

LA Galaxy forward Ibrahimovic was previously at Manchester United with Pogba, who has endured slightly mixed fortunes at Old Trafford.

The French midfielder has come in for criticism at times during his United stint and was even dropped on occasion last season by manager Jose Mourinho.

Pogba, however, was in fine form at the World Cup and was among the scorers in the final, as France beat Croatia 4-2 to win the tournament for the second time.

Ibrahimovic said: "I played with him for two years and people like to give their opinion, which they have the right to do.
