Icardi proud to break Zlatan record

Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain striker Mauro Icardi was proud to find out that he recently broke a record held by former club star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Icardi has really made an impression at PSG since joining from Inter Milan on a season-long loan in the last transfer window.

Icardi became the fastest player in PSG history to reach 10 goals after netting in the win over Amiens, a record that was held by Ibrahimovic.

“I didn't know that and it's a source of pride to achieve this kind of thing and make history for a team like Paris Saint-Germain," he told the official PSG TV channel.

“I try to always be prepared and to always be an option for my team-mates with my runs and my movement so that they can find a free player in attack.

“I'm always ready and focused to move as quickly as possible as soon as I receive the ball."

Having played in Spain, Itay and now France, Icard explained what he learned with his previous clubs.

“In Barcelona I learned a lot about tactics and technique. The philosophy of the game is very strong. It helped me in Italy to adapt and understand the game.

“The same goes for my movement on the pitch, because in Italy they weren't used to the moves I made.

“All that developed my playing intelligence on the pitch. Tactics and physical impact also built the player I am today.”
