In an exclusive interview for Champions, the official UEFA Champions League magazine, Paris Saint-Germain FC's Zlatan Ibrahimović talks transfers, trophies and making history.
"It's very exciting. Everything is new to me, as it is for the club – in the sense they are becoming big and powerful, signing big players, great players, and they want to win big trophies. They have a big dream and I am happy to be part of that. I have got to know my team-mates on the pitch.
"I have only positive things to say about Milan, but the future is here. I believe in it, that's why I came to Paris. Where else would I want to be?"
Did you move to PSG to conquer Europe?
"I wouldn't have come here if I didn't believe PSG could win the Champions League. It's true I have never won it, but I'm not desperate. Winning trophies comes with great players and I've won a lot because I've played with great players who have helped me. I am with great players now. You will never win big trophies on your own, that's for sure".
