Zlatan Ibrahimovic hopes his midweek brace against Auxerre is a sign of things to come as he settles into life at AC Milan.

The Sweden striker scored two goals in a three-minute second-half spell of the the 2-0 Champions League victory at the San Siro on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old, who spent three seasons at local rivals Inter, had missed a penalty in his side’s 2-0 defeat at Cesena last weekend in Milan’s first slip of the new Serie A campaign.

But the forward, who returned to Italy on year-long loan deal from Barcelona, now feels he is settled and ready to help his new side push for honours on all fronts.

“There was a lot of pressure at Cesena as everyone had high expectations,” said Ibrahimovic. “I had only just arrived.

“I’m delighted to have scored against Auxerre in front of the home fans and I am confident this is only the beginning. I believe I can do very well with this team.”
