Milan Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic: I Prefer Playing With Filippo Inzaghi, Not The Brazilians

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Milan coach Massmiliano Allegri to play Filippo Inzaghi on a regular basis because of the partnership they can forge together up front.

Inzaghi squared up to grandeur against Real Madrid following his double strike in the Champions League.

Ibrahimovic is inspired by the monumental figure of Inzaghi as he produced a bumper harvest against the Spaniards, and he believes he should start for Milan.

"Pippo is incredible," Ibrahimovic told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He deserves to play more because he is doing well, and when you play well, you should start.

"Plus, I feel more freedom when I play with him, whereas with the Brazilians I am forced to play inside the box more."
