Around 3,000 Milan supporters staged a protest against the club over a lack of spending in July, but they made two huge signings shortly before the deadline as Ibrahimovic joined from Barcelona and Robinho ended an unhappy spell with Manchester City.

With Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato already at the club, Milan will be expected to challenge on all fronts this season and Ibrahimovic feels no other club can boast their quality up front.

"Robinho is a magician with the ball at his feet. He's extraordinary," he said. "We have the best strike-force in Europe. If I were the coach of Milan, I'd be very happy."

Ibrahimovic also launched a fresh attack on Barca boss Pep Guardiola.

"No blame should rest with the club or the players," he said. "My problem was one person: the philosopher. I saw Thierry Henry in the stands last year. It didn't look fun. I don't have time to be watching the weather from the stands."

He added: "A small coach runs away from his problems."
