Sampdoria defenders Daniele Gastaldello and Stefano Lucchini are not exactly looking forward to facing Zlatan Ibrahimovic this weekend.
Milan arrive at Marassi on Saturday in the opening game of Week 14 looking to consolidate their Serie A leadership.
"I'm not small, I'm 1.87m tall, but when I see Ibrahimovic in front of me he looks like a giant," Lucchini noted.
"His struggles to settle in Spanish football surprised me, but perhaps he is just best suited to the Italian game."
Teammate Gastaldello also respects the threat of the super Swede who joined Milan on loan from Barcelona in August.
"He is a phenomenon," the defender added. "However, Milan are more than just Ibrahimovic."
