What did Zlatan Ibrahimovic say after Milan lost to Atalanta by 3?
The Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Milan striker, said that there were no excuses for the loss that the team received this evening against Atalanta, stressing that there are no positives with defeats.
Although Ibra participated over the course of the ninety minutes, he failed to create any significant risk to the visitors’ goal, and appeared in a less than bad performance.
After the match, Zlatan Ibrahimovic confirmed that today’s result was disappointing and it was not what the Rossoneri was planning and the coach and players are working for.
He added: “When you lose a match, there is no positive, and there are no excuses for what happened today. We lost many things that distinguish us tonight, and it was not our day.”
And he continued: “We have time to recover and that must be fast in order not to dominate the atmosphere of defeat. We must prepare well for the derby against Inter in the Italian Cup.”
And he added: “When you fall with a big score like this, there is no room for excuses. We are waiting for the next match against Inter to recover from the aftershocks and effects of the defeat.”
The date will be renewed in the Milan derby next Tuesday evening, when Milan plays against Inter in the quarter-finals of the Italian Cup.
Ibrahimovic has scored 12 goals so far at the Calcio level, making him second behind the current tournament’s top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo.
