Ibrahimovic hopes for all-star attack

September 7, 2010

Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes there is no reason he cannot play alongside AC Milan's Brazilian trio up front.

Sweden striker Ibrahimovic, who joined the Rossoneri from Barcelona last month, is expected to make his Serie A debut for the club in Saturday's match at Cesena.

Milan now have an abundance of attacking options with Robinho, Alexandre Pato and Ronaldinho also at the club but, asked if they could play with four strikers, Ibrahimovic told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Of course we can. It works very well in my national team.

"I don't know what tactical line-up we will play with but I believe this one would be a valid one. Attack is always the best defence - that is my philosophy."
