Ibra: I am no talisman

Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims he would never like to be considered a talisman like Francesco Totti or Alessandro Del Piero.

The Sweden international left Inter in the summer of 2009 only to controversially return to Italy with Milan at the end of last season.

Interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ibrahimovic said: "I wouldn't like to be a talisman.

"It's better to change rather than stay at a club for a long time because you learn through changing and a great player must be decisive in many clubs.

"You need motivation to be at your best. It's always easier to seem strong at your home.

"Anyway Milan will be my last club. I believe that I will stop after the age of 33.

"I don't want to stay and spit blood until the end."
