Galliani reveals Ibrahimovic ‘almost beat Allegri up’ after a defeat against Arsenal

By Oliver Fisher -

Former AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani has revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic almost punched Max Allegri back in 2012 after a 3-0 defeat.

The Swede recently recalled an interesting anecdote about his former manager Max Allegri, under whom he won the Scudetto with the Rossoneri in 2011, during which he was very angry with his then-manager for praising his team-mates following a 3-0 loss against Arsenal.

It was back in the Champions League in 2012 that the game took place and the Rossoneri managed to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals despite the result because they had run out 4-0 winners over the Gunners in the first leg.

Now, Galliani has offered his take on the incident as he spoke at the launch of Ibrahimovic’s new book Adrenalina at a theatre in Milan.

“It was a terrible game, everybody was happy after the match, but when we entered the locker room Ibra was screaming like a mad man,” Galliani said (via Football Italia).

“He almost beat Allegri up because he had brought two goalkeepers for the bench. Ibra is never happy. He is never satisfied. He always wants the maximum. If he draws or finishes second, he gets angry. He is never satisfied, and this is his best quality.”
