Ibrahimovic waits for a God-like celebration at Milan

Swedish player Zlatan Ibrahimovic waits for his God-like celebration at Milan rather than Cagliari

Milan had a miserable spell in their recent games, with zero goal for three consecutive matches, but the monotony ended with a 2-0 score in a recent one on Sunday with the assistance of Ibrahimovic’s class performance.

A distracted beat from Rafael Leao helped AC Milan take the lead right after the halftime. Whereas on the other hand, Ibrahimovic is waiting for a bigger celebration at his home ground, who came out off the bench with a 0-0 draw against UC Sampdoria.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports Italia Ibrahimovic said, “I’ll celebrate like a God at San Siro, not here,”

“I celebrate (like a) God every time I score, that way I feel alive! It’s important for a striker to try and be there, then sometimes it goes in, sometimes it doesn’t. 

“I got a few balls wrong at the start of the game, but I need a few matches to get into shape.”

Of Pioli checking on Ibrahimovic in the second half, the striker added, “I feel good, the coach just wanted to think about my age and see if I needed a rest, but there’s no problem. My mind is still sharp and the body has to follow.

“We played with two strikers and two wingers to push the whole team further forward, and it went well.”

Stefano Pioli, Milan’s manager felt Ibrahimovic’s presence was already being felt, to which he said, “This was certainly a different performance to recent outings. 

“We were more effective, more solid. Zlatan’s presence clearly gives us a reference point to build around and it will take us a while to really get to know each other.

“Ibrahimovic probably won’t run into space that much, so we need someone around him who can do the running, as we saw Leao, Samu Castillejo and Hakan Calhanoglu, then Giacomo Bonaventura does. 

“We have only just started working on this system, but the early signs are positive.”
