Zlatan: PSG Can Win Champions League

Paris Saint-Germain star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has insisted the French champions are strong enough to win the Champions League this season.

The 32-year-old revealed that he is likely to retire in two years but is determined to finally add the Champions League trophy to his collection before 2016.

“I have a contract until 2016,” he told ESPN.

“I will be 34 next season and I don’t see myself continuing to play at the top level after that.

“I think we can win the Champions League. We have a good opportunity. This team is made to play in good tournaments. You need to work hard and to have a bit of luck with you.

“In the key moments you need to have the small details on your side. I think we have that in our team now. We have more experience too, especially after last season. So we can do it.”

Ibrahimovic has won league titles with every team he has played for but has missed out on the biggest club competition so far. However, he dismissed suggestions that this has become an obsession.

“No, it’s not because, if it becomes an obsession for you, it feels that you have not reached what you wanted in your career,” he added.

“I have achieved what I wanted in my career, 100%. I have won 23 titles. I have given my best and done everything I could through my career to win as many trophies as possible.

“Of course it would be nice to win the Champions League and I feel I can and will win it. But if my career finishes without it, I would still be happy and proud.”
