Ibra: 'Time to beat Roma'

Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reiterated his intention to win everything this season and feels Saturday's clash with Roma is another test.

The Rossoneri have a six-point lead at the top of Serie A with one game remaining before Italian football's annual winter break.

"We have to beat them," Ibrahimovic told the Milan Channel. "That way we can enjoy the Christmas holidays and we'll be even more motivated in the second half of the season."

Asked to reveal what his objectives are in his first year at Milan, the Swede replied: "Winning everything even the Coppa Italia.

"Max Allegri is a young Coach. He has great enthusiasm, good ideas and wants to play attacking football.

"Having not won big trophies before in his career, he is doing everything to win them now.

"Max gives us motivation and determination. He is ruthless when he needs to be."

Finally, Ibrahimovic gave his reaction to recent comparisons between his style of play and that of Marco Van Basten.

"I take them as compliments, but he is a legend. You can't compare us.

"I hope to make history with Milan like him. But you can't compare me to a legend. Everyone has their own personality and their own characteristics," he concluded.
