Ibrahimovic: “AC Milan is a disaster; I had never felt as strong as I did there”

By Isak Möller -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is once again making the headlines in Europe, as his contract with LA Galaxy is due to expire in December. In an interview with La Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com), the big Swede spoke about Milan’s current situation. 

“AC Milan? It’s a disaster: so many words, few facts. This isn’t the club that everyone fell in love with, in Italy and around the world. Perhaps, the wrong people are there, who should be elsewhere,” he began.

Even though the striker acknowledges that the management might be subpar, he also doesn’t think that Paolo Maldini is the main issue, stating that he’s doing well with limited resources.

“Maldini isn’t enough? I don’t have any grounds to talk about him as a director, but as a player, he’s one of my favourites. He has a complicated and delicate task. Doing well with limited resources is an uphill battle,” he continued.

The 38-year-old also spoke about his glory days with the Rossoneri, winning the Scudetto in his first season at the San Siro. As stated by the newspaper (via PianetaMilan.it), Ibrahimovic believes that this helped him overcome the problems he experienced at Barcelona.

“I left Inter as a great player, but I had never felt as strong as I did in Milan. There was a group of champions at the very last stage of their history, and I did the maximum to push them one step further.

“Perhaps this is why the years at Milan were very special. They restored my happiness after the problems I experienced at Barcelona,” he concluded.

As mentioned, his contract with LA Galaxy will expire at the end of December and it remains to be seen where he will end up next. However, a return to Milan seems difficult due to their age policy.
