– Zlatan claimed Serie A title would have gone to Milan if they had signed him since the beginning of he league.
– “I am president, coach and player, but they only pay me as a footballer.” – Ibrahimovic
Zlatan Ibrahimovic claimed the Serie A league title would have gone to AC Milan had it been he was signed at the beginning of the league.
He made this claimed after the team recorded a 4-2 victory over Juventus on Tuesday.
Ibrahimovic returned to Milan – where he previously won the Scudetto in 2011 – as a free agent in January after leaving MLS and the LA Galaxy.
The 38-year-old striker is still having an impact in Italy’s top flight and took his goal tally in his latest Milan stint to six when he scored from the penalty spot against Juventus on Tuesday.
With the victory, Milan are up to fifth and have beaten title rivals Lazio and Juve in consecutive matches, leading a grinning star veteran Ibrahimovic to make a typically outlandish declaration.
Ibrahimovic said: “If I was here from the beginning of the season, we would have won the Scudetto!”
Ibrahimovic has been hailed as a role model for his Milan team-mates and added: “I am president, coach and player, but they only pay me as a footballer.”
The former Sweden international is out of contract at the end of the season, however, and he acknowledges he may not appear in front of a full San Siro again.
“There is still a month, so let’s see,” Ibrahimovic said amid growing speculation head coach Stefano Pioli will be replaced by Ralf Rangnick. “There are things that we cannot in control.
“Playing without fans is a pity, a strange situation. We do our job, we are professionals. It could have been the last time they have seen me live in San Siro.”
The forward’s first stint with Milan came between 2011-12, where he scored 56 goals in 85 appearances before making the move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Meanwhile, the team will be facing off with Napoli at their home on Sunday for the next stage of the competition.
