Ibra: Signings have strengthened Milan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says AC Milan are favourites to retain their Serie A title this season because they have strengthened well in the summer.

Milan bought defenders Philippe Mexes and Taye Taiwo while adding Italy midfielders Alberto Aquilani and Antonio Nocerino to replace the departed Andrea Pirlo.

And for the big Swedish striker, that is enough to ensure they keep their noses in front.

"We're still favourites, we've strengthened in this transfer window," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "We're better than we were last season, I'm happy with all the signings we've made."
