Ibrahimovic has always been known for his motivation and desire to win, and Boateng has revealed his initial thoughts on the highly-rated striker before the Swede proved him wrong.
"I had thought Ibrahimovic was an arrogant b*****d, but he’s really nice, kind and funny," the midfielder told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Ghana international also hailed veteran striker Filippo Inzaghi, who has signed a one-year extension at the club after a serious knee injury ended his 2010-11 campaign prematurely.
"As for Pippo Inzaghi, seeing him train at age 39 makes you think everything is possible. I’d throw up if I ran as much as he does," Boateng added.
Finally, speaking ahead of next season, Boateng believes teamwork will ensure that Milan can keep challenging for major honours, concluding: "This squad is fantastic and if we play as a team, then we can achieve any result."
