Barcelona ace Ibrahimovic: I can do so much more

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he hasn't shown his best for Barcelona because he is lacking confidence! The super Swede insists he can do a lot better for his new team, despite receiving great praise for his winner against Real Madrid last week.

"I can still play a lot better than what I'm doing," said Ibrahimovic. "I can improve.

"When I have more confidence I'll feel more comfortable and be able to play better. I had injuries that prevented me from being a hundred percent. When I've completed a month without injury, things will be better."

Ibra continues to be compared with former Barca striker Samuel Eto'o, now of Inter Milan.

"Look, we're different players," shrugged the Swede. "We both have different qualities."

He also admits he loves the attitude at Barca: "We were 0-3 up in Santander at halftime and the coach encouraged us to score more goals, something I had never seen in my five years in Italy.

"There it's enough to win 1-0. Here you're always looking for more goals."
