I’m President, Coach, Gamer In Milan – Ibrahimovic
Zlatan Ibrahimovic sparked a late comeback versus Serie A leaders Juventus and then declared that if he had been at A/C Milan from the start of the season, they would be Italian champions.
With Milan two goals down on Tuesday, Ibrahimovic converted a 62nd minute charge for his 6th objective this season. Four minutes later he established Franck Kessie for the equaliser then right away headed for the bench where he spent the rest of the match providing suggestions to team-mates as Milan scored two times more for a 4-2 success.
Rafael Leao hit Milan’s third goal in five minutes as Ibrahimovic reached the bench and Ante Rebic added the 4th in the 80th minute behind closed doors at the San Siro.
” I’m president, coach and gamer but I’m only paid as a footballer,” Ibrahimovic, who rejoined Milan from LA Galaxy on a six-month contract at the end of December, told broadcaster DAZN after the game. “If I had been here from the start we ‘d have won the Scudetto.”
” I’m old, it’s no trick, however it’s simply a number,” stated the 38-year-old Swede. “I played more today than the last video game. I feel excellent, to be truthful, and I am trying to help the group in every method.”
Speculation surrounds the future of Milan coach Stefano Pioli and Ibrahimovic was coy on whether he would be back next season.
” There’s still a month to go and let’s see, there are things here that we’re not in control. Playing without fans is a shame, an odd situation,” Ibrahimovic said. “It might have been the last time you see me live at San Siro.
” I like playing in this Milan team, I do what I can do intelligently, I show up and after that if I don’t make a difference I do not like it. I wish to help my team-mates and the fans.”
