Ibrahimovic still hungry for success

Ibrahimovic: I am still hungry for more success

Former Sweden international, Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he is not ready to walk away from football just yet and is still hungry for more success.

The 39-year-old AC Milan forward is the current top scorer in Serie A, ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku, with 10 goals from eight league games.

Ex-Sweden international Ibrahimovic has played in the top division of seven countries in a career that started more than two decades ago.

“I’ll keep going until I can’t do these things I’m doing,” he told BBC Sport.

“I just have to keep physically good and the rest will be solved by itself.”

AC Milan are top of the Serie A table and unbeaten after 10 games, five points clear of city rivals Inter.

“We are in unbelievable form – we are doing great, we’re doing good,” the Swede, who missed two games after testing positive for Covid-19, said. But still we haven’t won anything, we have to keep that in mind.”

Ibrahimovic says his second spell at Milan differs to his first time with the club a decade ago. Last season, the side finished sixth in the league.

An added motivation has been the fact some fans were not convinced he could perform in a top European league as a 39-year-old who had been playing in the USA for LA Galaxy – despite having scored almost 500 career goals.

“The first time I came to Milan I came to a club fighting for the title, the second time I came it was in a situation to bring the club and the team back to the top where it belongs,” he said.

“It’s a different challenge, it’s a challenge I like, because when they say it’s too difficult, it’s almost impossible, that’s where I come in the picture and that’s where I feel alive.

“If I can succeed and if I’m able to do what I think I can do, the feedback is amazing, the feeling is amazing because it’s a bigger achievement than coming to a top team that is already top. I’m very motivated,” Ibrahimovic said.
