Ibrahimovic: “I want to make history with Milan”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said that he wants to remain at Milan for a long time and wishes to become a part of Rossoneri folklore. The Swedish striker is enjoying an excellent start to his season in red and black and has already netted 13 times in 21 appearances.
But like always, Ibra is not satisfied just yet as he desires to climb the pedestal of glory with this Milan side. The objective for him and the Rossoneri he says are to compete well in all the competitions.
“I want to win everything, and that is normal. We have three objectives: the Scudetto, the Champions League and the Italian Cup. We must be focused and do our job well, then we will be rewarded.”
Milan are currently top of Serie A six points ahead of the chasing pack and have also qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League. Ibracadabra was equally complimentary of his team-mates who he says have helped him grow.
“In recent months I have seen great tradition, a great environment. The relationship with my teammates is amazing and we help each other. I’ve never breathed in such a comfortable atmosphere before.”
Ibrahimovic’s strike partners have been reduced with injuries to Alexandre Pato and Filippo Inzaghi. And Ibra stated that Pippo’s absence in particular is hard to digest and wishes him a fast recovery.
“I miss Inzaghi so much but on and off the field. If he comes back at the end of the season I promise him a great assist, I’m sure he will be stronger. And Gattuso? He is great, a motivator, pure adrenaline. He gives thrust to this group.”
In an interview with La Gazzetta Dello Sport ex-Milan legend Marco van Basten said that he was reminded of himself while watching Ibra. But the Swede feels such comparisons are meaningless.
“I like compliments. I always want to do more, because if you are hungry then you pass on that desire and motivation. I want to make history with Milan, but don’t compare me to Van Basten. He is a legend, you cannot make comparisons with legends.”
Finally, Ibra also stated that he was not afraid of the opponents Milan encounter in the Champions League as they finished second in their group. The big man feels that the Rossoneri are ready for anyone.
“I have no preference in getting Chelsea or Barcelona. We must be ready for anything. All the teams that get to the second round are strong. We feel good, we don’t fear anyone.”
Ibra and his team-mates will take to the field against Roma on Saturday night at the San Siro in the final game of the year hoping to close it on a high.
