“I advised Mbappé to go to Madrid”
On the occasion of the publication of his book ‘Adrenaline, my stories ignored’, Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave an interview to the Italian newspaper ‘Corriere dello Sport’ in which, as is customary for him, he left priceless comments and phrases.
Regarding the Real Madrid, the forward of the Milan explained that a Kylian Mbappé “I advised him to go to Madrid, It’s true. You need a more structured environment, like that of whites. However, I later told the president of the PSG that I shouldn’t sell him. “
The Swedish also referred to Golden Ball newly awarded to Leo Messi. Asked by the Argentine compared to Cristiano Ronaldo stated that “I say Messi, because we play together. We had a professional relationship, but the Golden Ball this year I deserved it Lewandowski. The best in history? Ronaldo Nazario. As a child I imitated him. “
Ibra he ran through many other proper names. From Fabio Capello, with whom he agreed in the Juventus, said for example that “it made me think only about the goal, it annihilated me all the time. When I arrived, I found it reading The GazzettaI said “good morning” and he didn’t even look at me. Then he got up, closed the newspaper and left without saying a word. “
He also told an anecdote with Silvio Berlusconi. “He was too nice. One Sunday we were in San siro and he asked me to change places because ‘someone very important’ was going to arrive. I thought she was a politician, and instead she was a beautiful woman. Berlusconi he winked at me: ‘very important person’. For him it was real, “he explained.
He took the opportunity to criticize Materazzi. “With his tickets he wanted to hurt, and footballers understand right away if you want that or just be tough like Chiellini, Stam or Maldini. He had a pending account and he paid it in a derby. He made an entrance with his feet up, I avoided him and hit him with an elbow. Inzaghi commented: ‘The best derby of my life: 1-0, goal from Ibra, Materazzi at the hospital’. It was a joke, obviously. “
They also had them with Lukaku. “He attacked me on a personal level, a shock. We had been partners. He never took the 50-pound bet for every failed check. He has a big ego, but I grew up in the ghetto and if someone hits, I answer. That was how I hurt him where It hurts him more: the mother’s rituals, and he lost control. I have one doubt: we lost that derby and I, later, got injured. What if the voodoo thing were true? I also have a pending account with him. see if we’ll see you soon, in the field. But I don’t hate anyone, and neither does he. “
On how it landed on the Milan, said that “after seeing a documentary by Maradona I decided to go to Naples to win the scudetto like him. It was all done but By Laurentiis kicked out Ancelotti. So I said to Raiola: which team is worse? Milan had lost 5-0 to Atalanta. ‘Determined, here we go.’
Finally, he spoke about his childhood. “I always suffered. As soon as I was born, the nurse made me fall from a meter high. At school it was different: everyone was blond, I was dark and had a big nose. They always hated me. With the girls I was very shy, she pointed it out at me I had to say: painful. I made love for the first time when I was 17, when I came out of the Malmoe ghetto. “
