Zlatan Ibrahimovic maintains the Champions League is not an obsession for him as the AC Milan striker attempts to help the club get over its Premier League hoodoo against Arsenal when Europe's elite competition restarts this week.

Milan have been eliminated at the last-16 stage of the Champions League by English clubs in three of the past four seasons, with Arsenal beating the Italian champions 2-0 at the San Siro in 2008 in their passage into the quarterfinals.

In an interview with the official Champions League magazine, Ibrahimovic says the Champions League used to be "my goal to win at all costs," before he realized that, "if you blow it up into something gigantic or make it too important, you'll end up never winning it."

Milan have been boosted by the return of several key players from injury.
