Ibrahimovic, 39, told Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport: “The more great players we sign, the better for the team. Giro is an expert and we don’t have players who have won many titles. Welcome.”
He continued, “Also because the group of players is good, seeks to learn and develop, is going in the right way. Am I selfish? I have to be like that, there are many kings but God is one and he is me, but without my colleagues I will not go anywhere and know that.”
He continued, “The ball made me meet people, travel, see different cultures. It gave me my current life. What did I give it? The most complete striker in the world.”
Ibrahimovic explained his opinion on the departure of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma from the team, saying: “I regret it. A better salary? What is Donnarumma worth now? He has matured in Milan, he may have stayed with the team for 20 years, maybe not 20 because he is not Ibrahimovic, but he is the strongest in the world.”
“He would have become Mr. Milan, like Paolo Maldini. There is no comparison between them. Every player has a value, according to how much you need him. The market determines the value, like the stock exchange. I would advise him to stay in Milan.”
Donnarumma left Milan a few days ago after his contract with the team expired.
Reports say the 22-year-old Italy goalkeeper is close to joining Paris Saint-Germain.
Earlier, Ibrahimovic renewed his contract with Milan to continue with the team until 2022.
