Ibrahimovic Talks Lukaku, Milan Scudetto, and Future

Zlatan Ibrahimovic revisited his career and touched on his future in a wide-ranging interview during the ‘Festival dello Sport’ in Trento. He addressed his clash with Romelu Lukaku (via Calciomercato).

“I’m sorry we didn’t meet again afterward. I know him, and we played together for a year. He wasn’t like that when that situation occurred. I didn’t expect that kind of behavior. I’ve known him since my time at Manchester. In Italy, they turn you into something you’re not. It’s the journalists’ fault. Maybe he felt to be the king of Milan and Serie A. He was doing well, but I didn’t understand him. He’s not a bad kid, but what happened happened. It wasn’t personal. It surprised me, because it was unusual for him. Instead, it was natural in my case.”

Ibrahimovic called the 2022 Scudetto with Milan his best one.

“It gave me the most satisfaction. We weren’t the favorites and not even in the top four. We didn’t have superstars, besides me. Moreover, we never knew who would be sold and when and if they would change the coach or a director, and then COVID happened. We stayed united and got better together every day. It was the strongest group I have been part of.”

Ibrahimovic dished on whether he’d join the management.

“We’ll see what happens. I had some meetings with Milan’s boss. We’re il talks, and we’ll see where we’ll land. We’re getting to know each other. The goal is to do something impactful.”
