Gallery: ‘Dad Ibra’, ‘Even tough ones cry’ – Today’s front pages of Italian newspapers

By Isak Möller -

Milan are in a good mood after the win against Fiorentina at the weekend, now able to head into the international break with a bit of comfort. However, they will have to continue their good form after the break. 

Several Rossoneri players have been called up to international duty and one of them is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, making his comeback in Sweden’s team after five years. At the age of 39, set to turn 40 in October, it’s simply stunning.

During the press conference yesterday, the striker had a hard time keeping the tears away when he was asked about his sons. Today’s Italian papers reacted to this, with Gazzetta Dello Sport writing “Dad Ibra, between the Scudetto and tears for the children”.

Tuttosport followed up with “Even the tough ones cry” and Corriere Dello Sport added “Ibra cries and then offers himself: Milan, at ease” on their respective front page. Obviously, the latter is referring to his willingness to renew with the club.
