AC Milan midfielder Tonali excited playing with Ibrahimovic

AC Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali is excited to call Zlatan Ibrahimovic a teammate.

Ibrahimovic struck twice in victory over Bologna - marking Tonali's first Serie A game for the club.

He said, “Ibrahimovic is strong, as well as being an idol for everyone.

“At 39, he has shown he can still play, win games and score.

“We must all use him as an example and as a teammate who can help us win games."

Tonali has been given No8 at Milan - Rino Gattuso's old number.

“It's a number that is not only beautiful but also important for me and the history of Milan," he said.

“Wearing it is an honour. I have to give my best and do what the previous number eights at Milan did."
