AC Milan striker Ibrahimovic on Bologna brace: I should've scored four

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic had mixed emotions after victory over Bologna.

Ibrahimovic struck both goals for the 2-0 win, but felt he could've scored more.

“I am in good shape, I am working, this is the second competitive game of the season. We won and I could've scored more. If I was 20 years old, I'd have scored another two…" Ibra told Sky Sport Italia.

“I am not old, I am like Benjamin Button, I start old and die young! Kidding aside, the team worked well, we are not at 100 per cent and therefore made some mistakes we usually avoid, but it bodes well.

“The objective is to do better than last season. The young players are working hard, they listen, they have discipline and after the last six months know what they need to do in order to do well, stay concentrated every day.

“This year, we have to take it one game at a time, play with confidence and treat every match like a Cup Final.

“I like having responsibility. The biggest pressure is what I put on myself. I don't want people to talk about my age, I want to be treated at the same level as everyone else. It doesn't matter if I am 38, I want to be treated like someone aged 20 and do the same work."
