AC Milan coach Pioli happy working with Ibrahimovic

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli admits he's enjoyed working with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Pioli says the Swede is very different to his public persona.

"In our first meeting, he told me: 'Mister, don't listen to those who tell you I am not ready. I am here to be a player and you are here to be a coach'," recalled Pioli.

"Whatever he does in future, he'll be successful. He sees the play before anyone else and never makes the wrong choice.

“The players see him as a leader, but also know he is altruistic and always ready to help."
