Ibrahimovic said: "At Inter there weren't many players who made the difference and when one of them was hurt, the game became difficult.
The 28-year-old has gone some way to convincing the media that he is more than capable of stepping into the shoes of Samuel Eto'o.
"He did very well here and I have a lot of respect for what he did. He is a great player, but taking his place hasn't put any pressure on me. On the contrary, it's motivated me. We cannot compare ourselves because we are very different," Ibrahimovic explained.
