German newspaper Bild have labelled Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘arrogant’ for saying he does not know who Ralf Rangnick is.
Ibrahimovic launched into a startling tirade during an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport in which he stated that he is unlikely to remain at AC Milan because he is ‘practically playing for free’.
It is not the first time that Ibrahimovic has expressed displeasure at the running of the club, as there was a heated confrontation between Ibrahimovic and CEO Ivan Gazidis at Milanello last month.
When asked about rumours that Stefano Pioli could be replaced by Ralf Rangnick, the Swede was blunt: “Who is Rangnick? I don’t even know who he is.”
Now, the famous German newspaper Bild have responded, labelling Ibrahimovic “arrogant” for replying that way about Rangnick. Despite not being considered an elite manager, his work is still respected and has inspired many great managers such as Jurgen Klopp, so it is unlikely Ibrahimovic has not heard of him.
