MN: Ibrahimovic’s performance vs. Spezia comes under criticism with Sanremo in his sights

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic put in an uncharacteristically anonymous performance during Saturday’s 2-0 defeat against Spezia.

As MilanNews writes, we will have to wait for the next few matches to see what this side are really made of, and whether they can bounce back from yet another damaging defeat.

The Rossoneri will travel to Belgrade this week for the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32 clash, then face Inter on Sunday afternoon before the return leg on Thursday, and then a trip to face Roma follows that.

The defeat in Liguria even saw players like Hakan Calhanoglu and Ismael Bennacer underperform, and with Rafael Leao and Franck Kessie also seeming disoriented it was a recipe for disaster.

As mentioned, Ibrahimovic was not on his game either and that is why he couldn’t drag the rest of the team through. It is strange that against a newly promoted side the Swede did not manage to shoot even once.

As is well known by now, Zlatan will be a guest at every night of the Sanremo music festival from 2 to 6 March. In a crucial moment of the season in which Milan are struggling to find consistency, the report questions the decision to let Ibra go.

Fabio Caressa also expressed himself on the subject in an interview with Sky: “I would not have sent him. You cannot commute between Milanello and Sanremo for 4-5 days. The club should have banned this.”
