ASMIR Begovic insists he wants to "learn from" superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after becoming team-mates with the Swede at AC Milan.

The Cherries goalkeeper completed his loan switch to the Italian giants earlier this week and could make his debut tonight in their Coppa Italia clash against Spal.

At the other end of the pitch, 38-year-old Ibrahimovic will hope to continue his good start to life back at the Rossoneri, having returned to the club in December.

Ibrahimovic has scored more than 500 career goals and won a host of trophies, including Serie A with Milan in 2010-11.

And Begovic is looking forward to getting to know the former Manchester United, PSG and Barcelona frontman.

"He's an amazing player, an amazing person and an amazing leader," Begovic told the AC Milan website.

"Of course he can make a big difference and I want to learn from him, understand how he works, how he operates and try and get better in training with a player like him."

Asked if any former Milan stars of the past had caught his eye throughout in his career, Begovic added: "There are many AC Milan legends who inspired me. Of course Dida, (Christian) Abbiati, Marco Amelia.

"I remember goalkeepers I watched for many, many years and of course amazing players. Paolo Maldini, Andriy Shevchenko, Andrea Pirlo. Many amazing players."
