Ibrahimovic and Robinho predict AC Milan success
Friday 10 September 2010
New AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is confident the club can land success on the domestic and continental fronts this term.
After making the switch from Barcelona, the towering Swede believes the Rossoneri could be the team to beat with a galaxy of attacking stars in their ranks.
Speaking to reporters, the former Internazionale star said: "In my opinion, we are stronger than Inter because now I am at Milan.
"With Robinho's arrival we are more complete, we are favourites to win the Scudetto and the Champions League.
"I came here to win. I hope to do better than I did at Juventus and Inter. It'll be a fantastic year. The fans will have fun.
"Everyone enjoyed themselves in training today."
Meanwhile, Robinho is confident Milan can prosper with a four-pronged attack in their Serie A fixture with Cesena this weekend.
The Brazilian has thrown his weight behind the claim that Pato, Ronaldinho and Ibrahimovic could all play alongside him and he has encouraged coach Masssimiliano Alegri to do so.
"We can play with one, two, three or four strikers," he said.
"You need to run, sure, but you also need to run to score goals. There is Pato and Ronaldinho. Everyone can give their contribution."
