Zlatan Ibrahimovic spoke to Sky in the post-match of Udinese-Milan.
Now you have the record for the "oldest" goal in Serie A, you have surpassed Costacurta:
"He better keep this record, I don't want it (laughs, ed.)."
You have entered the history of this club, does this mean you will stay at this club again and bond more with the team?
"I am proud to enter the history of this club. It is a great club with great history, with great players. My name is on it and it means so much to me. This goal did not bring me three points, what I wanted. Then first game as Milan captain gave me pride, unfortunately it didn't go the way we wanted. But I felt good, then I hadn't played as a starter for 14 months. The important thing is to feel good, if I feel good like today I have no doubts. I still believe in myself."
Is there still room for excitement in your career? Tell us how the team gave you the sash today?
"In my opinion there is still room. Ismael came to my room today and told me he wanted me to be the captain. I told him okay, I'll take this pressure off you (laughs, ed.). I was fine, I prepared as best as I could do. Unfortunately the game didn't go well, we have to raise the level."
What happened to this team?
"When you play as champions of Italy you are a target and a stimulus for everyone. This year we play under pressure every game. When you play a big club it's like that, everyone wants to beat Milan because they are Italian champions. Look at Udinese that when they score goals, it looks like they scored a goal in a final. But it's also fair because they score goals against the Italian champions. This team has no experience to play as Italian Champions. That's why these up and downs come. We have not been able to keep the level high for all the games, we have not been able to be at our best all the time. It is not an excuse but an explanation for what happened."
How do you experience the Champions League from the outside?
"Everyone wants to play in the Champions League. When it was time to give the lists I was not ready, I respect the choice and now I can only prepare my colleagues in the best way in training. I have confidence in the team, they have done well so far and they will do well against Napoli as well."
On the path of the Italians in Europe. How does it seem to you?
"Very positive. We were 7, now we are 6, I speak as an Italian. 3 in Champions and the others in Europe and Conference. It is a positive thing, Serie A is taking more points. The league is doing well in my opinion. When they said Serie A is not as good as the Premier and then Italy won the European Championship there was not so much talk... I'm happy for the three Italian teams in Champions."
Do you want to continue?
If I am well I want to continue. Those who quit complain that they quit. If I am well I can do even more. Then I suffered too much in these 14 months, I want to take revenge. I am well at Milan, it depends on them what they are looking for, what the idea is. I am available, I am not in a hurry."
On the penalty:
"In my opinion I shot the first one well, then the goalkeeper made a good save. Then the second one came and I thought, 'Now I'm going to throw the ball and goalkeeper in' (laughs, ed.)."
