AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic admits already being cooked

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic admits he's already cooked.

The Swede is forced to play almost every game after Alexandre Pato and Pippo Inzaghi were ruled out by long-term injuries.

"I have played many games this season and now I feel tired, almost worn out," he said when accepting an award in Sweden.

"Seeing that at Milan there are two injured strikers, the situation is not very easy for me. I have to thank the Sweden Coach who allowed me to rest a little bit this week."

Andrea Pirlo is out of tonight's game with Fiorentina after a relapse of his right thigh problem, but Ronaldinho is included despite a late night on the town.

"I will carry on my playing career while I still have the hunger. Just look at Inzaghi... I don't know if after that I'll become a Coach or a television commentator," continued Ibrahimovic.

"I only know that I will get up at 8am and not know what to do with myself if I can't get on to the pitch. I hope that time is as far away as possible.

"In the meantime I'd like to win the Swedish Player of the Year award a few more times. I don't think about the Ballon d'Or any more, as that's a dream for young folk."
