Serie A news: Milan star Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels young and doesn't have a 'big ego'

Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists he is a team player who gives everything to help the defending Serie A champions.

The Swede has never been shy of the limelight, but has now pointed out that his outspoken nature doesn't mean he's a selfish player.

"I am someone who wants to help in every way, I don't have the big ego of someone who wants to do everything himself," he told Milan TV.

"I am here at Milan to give everything, to help my teammates improve, to have success and understand what we're doing. It is a sacrifice, hard work and we aren't doing this just to pass the time.

"When you provide an assist, it's just as important as scoring a goal. I do everything I can to help."

The 41-year-old broke a Rossoneri record this year when he became the oldest player to make an assist.

"It's a record for little old men, but I feel young!" Ibrahimovic said when asked about the milestone.

"The important thing for me is to win the game, I do everything to help the team. If I do that as the oldest, that's fine too."

Unfortunately for the former Barcelona and Manchester United player, he is yet to make an appearance for Milan this campaign as knee surgery has kept him sidelined.

Ibrahimovic is expected to return to action for Milan early next year.
