Telelombardia: Ibrahimovic’s stunning reaction to being subbed – “Take Calabria off instead”

By Oliver Fisher -

Zlatan Ibrahimovic made a staggering remark after being substituted during the 62nd minute of Milan’s 5-1 win over Bologna.

Ibrahimovic was removed from the action in the second half having provided two assists for his team-mates, but he was seen shouting at Pioli on the sidelines as he went to take up a position on the bench.

It is the third time in four games he has been replaced around the hour mark, and he ignored a fist bump with Pioli before exulting an angry reaction.

As reported by DAZN, Ibra was annoyed at the timing of his withdrawal as he wanted to continue playing and to score a goal. Pioli tried to extend his hand to congratulate him on a positive display, but the Swede pointed to the field.

According to Telelombardia (via MilanWorld), Ibrahimovic said: “Next time take someone else, not me. Take Calabria off instead.”

The newspapers confirm Ibra’s declaration to Pioli: “Next time you bring out one of those. I wanted to score.”

      Hi if ibra was not on the team then hardly any other players would play at that level. He wants to score goals and especially win. Oh cry if she’s a little annoyed. Do you think our number 10 would play that level if Ibra wasn’t on the team. It will be noticed when he leaves. Gazidas has not succeeded anywhere and is not criticized at all. He has already totally ruined Arsenal and is now making the team that won the second most international tournaments in the world an inter-Milan b-team. Raised young and sold at high prices so the owners get money. If they were to raise Milan to a level commensurate with its valuation, money would have to be spent. And when the city set an example, it can be used as much as it wants. It takes at least one super star for a team that can win and sadly Ibra is the only one who can win at the moment. Who do we buy for a farm that requires that level from other players? Not much young people help if morale is lost.

    He doesn’t need it at all

    Where was Milan until Ibra came? His tantrums can be tolerated. He should be allowed to end his career gracefully with Milan. Moreover, he has more footballing experience (Juve- Inter- Milan- Bacelona- PSG- LA GALAXY and now Milan) than Pioli and all his staff put together.

    He need to be calm and be a good leader.. we still need more of your time with us..
