Ibrahimovic: I don't want to just score goals

The Paris Saint-Germain star insists he is more than just a pure goalscorer, and hopes to assist his team-mates by creating chances as well as finding the back of the net
Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has expressed his irritation at the expectation for him to always score.

The Sweden international was the top scorer in Ligue 1 last season, netting a total of 30 goals during 37 appearances.

However, Ibrahimovic is adamant that finding the net should not be his only responsibility, and hopes to aid the team by creating chances as well as scoring them.

"People are demanding," the 31-year-old told reporters. "They always expect more of me.

"For an attacker, it is always important to score. But I do not want to be reduced to that. I try to play the game and help the team. I hope to deliver more assists.

"It's important for a team that the responsibility for scoring goals is shared. At PSG, we can always score a lot."

After four matches played, PSG currently sit fourth in Ligue 1, two points behind table-toppers Monaco. They will face Bordeaux on September 13.
