The bubble Zlatan Ibrahimovic
A Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden, 1981) no one will raise your voice, replicate or cough. It was ever thus, as acknowledged by his neighborhood friends conflicting ethnic and Rosengard (Malmo) where he grew up. Take it or leave it. Action, reaction. Snort, Smite. Milan, in need of a forward universal, capable of distorting the rocky defenses ofcalcium and decompose Zagas European striker Zlatan has reference, the epicenter of his football progress. Take it. The club, led by Xavi, Iniesta and tipsy by Messi capitalized, flush left him, even if it were the most expensive signing in history (66, million, broken down into 43.5 the transfer over the 20 that were assessed to the transfer of Eto’o and Hleb). Now, both teams are measured in quarters, with the return at the Nou Camp, which looks forward as received him with open arms and dismissed him with a kick in the pants, branded as philosopher offended by Guardiola and entangle the environment . “Messi, Iniesta and Xavi were as students going to school to obey without protest,” he said in his autobiography.
The significance of the Milan Ibra is so expressive that the chapters of these two courses is made ??clear. Sanctioned three times by punching or slapping at the wrong-three from each time-since the club only gave a warning. Neither went from scolding when publicly criticized the coach Allegri in the previous round of the Champions League at the Emirates, Arsenal feud (3-0), after winning at San Siro 4-0. “The team has been too cautious,” he said, while acknowledging he was “misplaced” the system of three points. “You can lose in many ways, but this is unacceptable. We are the Milan “.
The answer came from the vice president Adriano Galliani: “I’d rather angry, when you feel bad with what happened, lose fighting.” Only Gattuso, soul-absent team in recent years by an eye problem has been overcome, was called to order more as a friend and counselor as leader.
As controversial as great, Ibrahimovic is ready for anything and everyone. “If you have a problem, tell me in the face. You talk a lot on TV, but I make my game and if you do not like, do not look, “Arrigo Sacchi told a couple of months ago, when the extécnico said the ram was caught a ball in a goal thanks to its 47 feet. The news of his audacity, in any case is not new, it is, however, that almost always comes out unscathed from their private grief, so much doubt that anyone is in their best every day and offers a concert spectacular indoor soccer: sum 26 goals in all competitions.Then, as he likes, as we did in the club, at Inter, at Juve, in the Ajax, in Malmoe and Balkan, opens his arms and waits for the companions swoop on him, he hanging, literally, given his height (1.95 meters).
Ibra’s presence not only guarantees punctuality on the top, but it affects the style of Milan. The Swedish validates the bye because anesthesia balls to vent arrivals from the second line, so fruitful with Emanuelson, Boateng and Nocerino. Something that seems to have caught the trick, fun with the pass impossible, far from receiving the criticism of individualistic and who stayed on the road since he played at the club. Of their tows, passing, gaps and extensions takes advantage Robinho, Esquire in the attack, since Cassano still sidelined with his heart problem and Pato just found your game.
The break Milan’s Ambrosini and Seedorf put (now in cotton as Boateng, Maxi Lopez, Nesta, Gattuso and Flamini, among others), but many miss the helm of Pirlo, now at Juve, the vertical and final pass conclusively area. It made the game too the Italian team, especially from the defense because, beyond Thiago Silva is not rasear leather. Again, there emerges the figure of Ibra, the plunger to the two areas, sink all the balls, relief and definition.
Faced already in the league tables in the field-Barca (2-2) and Barca’s victory at San Siro (2-3) – Zlatan did not attend the Camp Nou for a sore muscle that cynics understood and simulated. It will also be reuniting with Maxi Lopez, Zambrotta and Van Bommel (who will miss the first leg through suspension). But now, Ibra, musketeer goatee, ponytail in her hair and provocative everlasting smile is as ever, nestled in the bubble of Milanello. And looking forward to attending the club, the only club where noted, far from the reference set in the shadow of Messi.
