Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 40, continues to talk both at his club and with the national team. The Swedish was part of the last double round of the UEFA Qualifiers and will have to play the playoffs to win a place in the next Qatar World Cup 2022. In the last game of B Group, the forward of the Milan hit without ball César Azpilicueta.
“I did it on purpose. I’m not ashamed to say it because he did something silly to my partner. It was stupid, but I would do it again to make him understand: ‘You don’t do that, damn it. You don’t have the balls to do it against me. I’ll show what happens if you do it to me. ‘That’s why I did it, “the forward said in an interview with the British newspaper The Guardian.
He added: “It is not about missing the play-offs. It is about making him understand that you do not mess with someone who is on the ground. You do not attack a dog that does not speak. Attack the one who can do something. It is too easy annoy my teammates who are 20 years old and very good. I hope you understand now. “
Regarding the pain and motivation at his age, he confirmed: “It’s not easy. Every day I wake up and I have pain everywhere. This morning I had pain everywhere but as long as I have goals, as long as I have adrenaline, I continue. I know. I’m getting to something good. I’m coming to a place where I need to work to stay on top. The only thing that keeps me going is adrenaline. Getting two more followers won’t cure you. Getting more money won’t cure you. attention will not cure you. What will cure you is adrenaline “
“For me, suffering is like having breakfast. But many people do not understand suffering because the new generation, with all these platforms, has little to do to get credit. The older generation had to do a lot to get a little. I am very proud of belong to the previous generation, “he concluded.
