Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer said veteran forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘rarely holds back when he has to push’ his younger teammates.

The Algeria international said the 39-year-old ‘brings a lot’ to the League leaders and has become a ’standard bearer of a new generation of young talents’.

“Zlatan rarely holds back when he has to push his young Milan teammates,” Bennacer told French agency AFP.

Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer said veteran forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘rarely holds back when he has to push’ his younger teammates.

The Algeria international said the 39-year-old ‘brings a lot’ to the League leaders and has become a ’standard bearer of a new generation of young talents’.

“Zlatan rarely holds back when he has to push his young Milan teammates,” Bennacer told French agency AFP.

“Even if we sometimes see him screaming on the pitch, it’s better than if he doesn’t say anything. Then it would mean he doesn’t care what we’re doing right now. He brings us a lot, with all the experience he has, he tries to take us to the highest level.

“He gives us a lot of advice. Ibrahimovic has become a standard bearer of a new generation of young talents.”

Milan currently prepare to face Spezia on Saturday and will hope to take advantage of a tough weekend for their Scudetto rivals.

Bennacer is eager to make the previous effort count and vows to ‘give everything’ for the fans.

“If we don’t do something this year, everything we have done before, from March and onwards, will be forgotten,” he said.

“We must, for ourselves, try to make Milan the great club it was. Also because it’s boring for the fans that we play behind closed doors.

“They are not there physically, but they follow us. We must give everything for them too.”
