Wow, people talk like PSG have won everything.

This just proves that Ligue 1 is stronger than most people think and also that Barca aint what they used to be. Andre Gomes/Rakitic isn't the perfect replacement for Xavi and soon Iniesta will go/retire too. Once upon a time they had the best midfield EVER and now it's falling. The MSN combo won't always save you and I'd like to think that's exactly what we saw today even with Thiago Silva out. Did you guys see how frustrated Neymar was at the end? Hilarious.

I still don't think PSG will make it, not even fucking close. Lets not forget Bayern with Ancelotti. For me Ancelotti is a CL god and I don't think there is a chance that PSG can beat them nor beat Juve. There is many many teams left that can challenge PSG.


Next thing we will see is Napoli beating RM and people will talk how they'll win CL ;)

Mkhitaryan had quiet game, ManUtd took control once Pogba was in. He was superb and controlled the game. This wasn't one of Mkhitaryan's best performance apart from that superb assist.

Overall he is class though, the way he glides past players is superb. It's like he receives the ball and then accelerates so effortlessly.

On Ibra, he is having great year. Some ManUtd fans moan about his missed chances against Stoke and Burnley but that's just silly. All players miss chances, Ibra has very good movement and that's the reason he gets so many chances. 24 goals for a 35 year old is amazing record and we have still 18 games to play minimum if we qualify for next round in Europa.

This is what Zlatan said about his fitness.


"I feel good. I feel in shape," Ibrahimovic told United's official website. "The boss has made a good programme for me since the start. He has been adapting my physical point of view and the way I can play every game. He has to get the credit for that.

"The mixture between training, recovery and the game, I do it differently, and he set it up for me. So that's why I can hold out for so long. And, when you have a body like me, it's not a normal body. It's like when you see an animal. It goes in and is fresh always so I see myself as an animal."

I've just enjoyed watching the way he's adjusted his game over the years. From an all round attacking phenom who was more a scorer of great goals than a great goal scorer, to a a true center forward with ability to play with his back to goal and a pretty clinical finisher.

His personality has also changed a lot as he's matured. You can tell he's a lot more enjoyable to be around these days (especially for young players). Now his cockiness is more of a joke and I feel he doesn't take him self so seriously. Always been a model professional though, even when he was a little bit more of a tyrant.

Also I wonder what Manu is gonna do, I guess without the injury they would have renewed his contract for a year, so i wonder what they ll decide now.
Seeing as just doping him if he does not want to might lead to some bad PR.

Very interesting situation. There is a clause to extend contract but Ibra delayed it so there was loads of rumors about Napoli and MLS, not that he is out for a year not sure ManUtd will offer the same contract if they offer one.

From human point of view, Zlatan should be offered contract but from business point of view it's a waste of money. If offered we should offer him lower offer or we should provide all the medical facilities to him and let him to go to MLS.

Raiola: ‘When Ibra left Juventus…’


Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent claims he didn’t leave Juventus due to Calciopoli - “the deal with Inter was reached six months before”.

The Swedish striker left the Bianconeri when they were demoted to Serie B in 2006, joining the Beneamata and winning three Scudetti in a row.

Currently at Manchester United, the 35-year-old is recovering from a cruciate ligament injury, and his representative discussed both his past and his future in an interview with Corriere dello Sport.

“Of course Zlatan will come back and play,” Mino Raiola said.

“Where? We’ll see. He really is the best of all. And he’s not arrogant and presumptuous as people like to say, but honest and loyal.

“He’s a leader who respects everyone, but he needs the greatest commitment. I was with him for three weeks in Pittsburgh, USA where he was operated by Dr Freddie Fu and Volker Mushal on May 2.

“Our relationship has become even stronger. The operation was a complete success and you saw how happy he was when, even while limping, he lifted the Europa League at Solna.

“It’s not true that Ibra was transferred away from Juve because of Calciopoli, in the summer of 2006. The agreement with Inter was reached six months before.

“It was November 2, 2005. Champions League, Juve-Bayern 2-1, Ibra sent off in the 89th minute for a second booking.

“Moggi went on the rampage, and in the dressing room he exploded at me: ‘tell Ibrahimovic than he can shove his contract extension up his…’

“I’ll let you imagine Zlatan’s reaction. If he’d been sold in January, Inter would have paid €90m. Then Calciopoli broke out and he cost Moratti €20m.

“His move to Paris Saint-Germain? If it was up to Ibra he’d never have left Milan. So much so that one day [Adriano] Galliani invited me for dinner at his home.

“Adriano asked Zlatan: ‘Do you want to leave?’. Zlatan responded: ‘No, capo’.

“Adriano cut it short, he said: ‘Then we’ll never sell you. Your agent is here too, there’s a bottle of champagne. Mino, why don’t you make a toast?’.

“I knew what Milan’s financial difficulties were, and how crucial the transfers of Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva to the French club were.

“The Swede’s wages weighed on the accounts to the tune of some €75m gross. Given the situation, selling him was inevitable.

“And you should have seen Zlatan’s reaction, for three months he didn’t answer my calls, for 18 months he wouldn’t talk to Galliani.

“And on the day of his presentation, I had to go and get him in Stockholm in a private plane!”

Grazie Moggi :trolldad:

I understand you and I agree with you about the agent part but put in mind I didn't mention him leaving Inter since he didn't get fucked over by Inter. Also the story Raiola made up about Juventus I don't know if it's true but I know that Ibra left because who the fuck wants to play for Serie B team with his caliber?

Everything I mentioned is FACTS not things coming from Raiolas mouth. The salary thing with his Swedish club and the guardiola cojones part can be read from his book. The Milan thing is fact, they didn't afford him this was even said at the transfer years ago. Why would they let go of the world best defender and a striker who made a team full of shit players look good especially the overrated Prince Boateng?

Official Breaking News: Man Utd part companies with Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Manchester United and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have officially parted companies. The official website of the Premier League, in fact, has just released the list of players that are set to be released by their clubs at the end of the season and the Swede features as the only player who is set to be dropped by Manchester United at the end of the month.
The former Psg star suffered a knee ligament injury at the end of the season and is expected to spend almost six months on the sidelines.

The Red Devils have decided not to activate their option to extend the player’s stay at the club for one more season.

​Ibra, 35, netted 28 goals in all competitions during the 2016/17 campaign and his salary was in the region of € 12 million-a-year.

Manchester United have already identified the perfect replacement for the former Juve, Inter and Milan star given that the Red Devils have begun talks with Real

He'll probably stay with United. He'll be doing his rehab there and they probably didn't want to offer him a contract while he's rehabilitating. There were also rumors a few weeks back that he declined a contract offer because he doesn't want to get paid while he can't play.


He'll probably stay there until his injury heals, and if all goes well, United will offer him a new contract.

I'd rather say Sweden would've become a even better team with Zlatan.

Currently, we still miss a reliable striker whereas the likes of Berg or Toivonen (despite his goal against France) aren't.

IMHO he defined an era and completely redefined the Target man position someone with his height and technical ability, it wasnt seen in football. His personality was an added bonus. I despise him for going to Milan (my centurion kit RED CROSS one has his name on the back :palm:) but some of my favorite time watching this club was on his shoulders.

CdS reporting that Zlatan returning to Inter this summer is possible (link (http://www.sempreinter.com/2017/06/23/cds-ibrahimovic-return-italy-inter-possibility/))

I for one, would welcome our new Swedish overlord...

M.Adnan
23 Jun 17, 17:48
I wouldn't be surprised if it happens. Both Zlatan's and Inter's current circumstances can push for this move. Zlatan knows that no top club will take an old severely injured player, and Inter know that they can't attract someone better then him at this time.

In addition, he won't cost Inter anything (avoiding FFP restrictions). His immediate success and impact in Italy is also non-questionable. I think this deal is possible.

I also won't be surprised if Milan act like a dog sniffing other dogs' assholes like they always do and interfere with this deal (assuming we're interested).

He was very good but poor in games where he missed many chances. Overall he had very good season scoring 28 goals even though he missed last 2 months.

Also re missed chances, IIRC RVP topped the table with around 25 when we won the league.

I don't know about that. Ibra I'm sure would have done fine there but I'm not sure he would have ripped it up like you say. His game changed a lot since his 2nd stint with Milan. At PSG he became a different player, before that he was never really the out and out striker he was at United. If you look at his younger years his goal tallys were solid but nothing spectacular until Mourinho came.

While i always admired his skill level i never got too attached to Zlatan while he was playing here. Somehow it just always felt like he s not too dedicated to inter and it always felt like he was gonna leave every transfer window.

Nayways on the whole LGI thingy performance wise he d definitely deserve it, but once he left he started to talk trash about us, and whats even worse he joined BBilan after barca and his full of praise for them. Even now he stil says from time to time how much he loved BBIlan, which is whyI dont want to see the fucker in the LGI category.

He is a legend of the game and he should be remembered as one but Imho he is not an inter legend.

Raiola: ‘Why Ibra joined Inter’

Mino Raiola insists Zlatan Ibrahimovic didn’t leave Juventus due to Calciopoli - “I felt it was time to move to Inter”.

The Swedish striker joined the Bianconeri from Ajax in 2004, but following their demotion to Serie B in the Calciopoli scandal, he made the switch to the Beneamata.

“When Zlatan left Juventus, he’d already been prepared for a year,” Raiola insisted, speaking to Expressen.

“It wasn’t because of the scandal, it was nothing to do with that, I had already arranged the deal.

“I felt it was time to move to Inter, and in my opinion Zlatan was the ideal. He went to Inter to write history.

“He didn’t like the idea of going to Inter at first. Then he was irritated because he knew I was right.

“At the end of the day though he does what he wants. No animal in the world; elephant, weapons or bombs can make him do something he doesn’t want to do.

“After Barcelona I knew he had to go back to Milan, but not to Inter.”

Ibrahimovic is now 36 and recovering from a cruciate ligament injury, but Raiola doesn’t expect him to retire any time soon.

“He has so much time ahead of him, at least five or six years. I won’t let him stop, he has to work for me. I’ve been working for him for so many years, now it’s my turn!

“My kids are adults and I need money, he accepted to work for me for only five years. We’re very similar in many ways, but different in other ways.

“Obviously he made me, but in Sweden they also say that I made him. The truth is that we created each other.

“When Zlatan was coming up, I always gave him Pavel Nedved as an example. Now I give my young players Zlatan as a reference. Zlatan has surpassed and raised the level.

“Now I’m waiting for someone to raise it even more. It’s very difficult, but [Paul] Pogba is close and also [Romelu] Lukaku.

“They have something inside you can’t buy or create. Each of them has a special flame.”

WTF What is raiola doing with all the money he made that he still needs more. Also he made Zlatan? I doubt that Raiola helped Zlatan in any way other then to maximize the Money he earns while playing football.

Also does he really think anybody buys this shit of zlatan would have moved here even without calciopoli? First The jube mafia would have never allowed it and secondly no fucking way would zlatan have gone form the team finishing first to the team finishing 4th(or was it 3rd) .

Ibrahimovic: 'No Champions League regrets'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists he has no Champions League regrets. “I wouldn’t change my 20 years or 33 trophies for one Champions League.”

The Swedish legend is currently at Manchester United, but famously left Inter the year before they went on to win the Treble under Jose Mourinho.

“I am missing one trophy…” Ibra told Sky Sport Italia.

“But I say to myself: if I had won the Champions League, would I have become a better player? No. By not winning it, have I become a worse player? No.

“I want to win it at all costs, every year that I play, I want to win: but let me turn this around to every player who had one super season and won the Champions League, then disappeared and never won anything else.

“I, on the other hand, have won consistently every year – and I mean every single year. I wouldn’t change these 20 years or 33 trophies for one Champions League, because I proved every year who I was and I dominated every year.”

Inter is the only team who've won the league before and after Zlatan joined. He then goes to Barcelona and wins the league and then goes on to Milan and wins the league which they haven't done since 03/04 and haven't won it since he left (Allegri you overrated shit).

Not sure what level MLS is, just watched few goal clips and nothing more. Zlatan at least in England looked like he was done. He played only 1 or 2 games and he looked completely off pace. Understandable that he was out of game for 6-8 months and he is old player but felt like it was more than that. He could barely move.]

Hopefully he recovers completely and shows how good he is in MLS. Shame we signed him so late in his career. Played 1 season and injured in April (he had 10 more games, at least 7 league games to play) and he scored 28 goals. He was involved in nearly 40 goals in 46 games.

He also missed many great chances but he also created so many great chances which didn't end up as assists.

Also I remember how ref called so many fouls when he was too physical for CBs. Just loved it.

Swedish coach just said that he doesn’t have a clue what is Zlatan talking about and that his NT story finished with his retirement.

It’s obvious that he was joking on Jimmy Kimmel show about putting Sweden on the map, about his participation on the World Cup and many other stuff.

If that Swedish coach was any smarter he would use all this fuss and called him because he’s by far the biggest Swedish ambassador in the World for last 20 years and he deserves to choose if he wants to go in Russia or not.

I am positive they would threat him differently if his last name was Stenmark, Larson or Ljundberg.

Even Zlatan agrees


He told Canal+: "What does the Swedish media do? They defend me or do they jump on and attack me? They still attack me, because they cannot accept that I am Ibrahimovic.

"If another player would do same mistake I do, they would defend him. But when it comes to me, they don't defend me.

"This is about racism. This is about racism. I don't say there is racism but I say there is undercover racism.

"This exists, I am 100 percent sure. Because I am not Andersson or Svensson. If I would be that, trust me, they would defend me even if I would rob a bank. They would defend me, I tell you."

Great compilation of Inter's best player (ability wise) in modern time by a country mile.

Used to single-handedly carrying Inter.

The "tactics" under Mancini was just "Give the ball to Zlatan and see what it happens".

Just a shame on the way Zlatan left the club, unfortunately.

Zlatan's thread would've been archived in LGI otherwise.

But yea, we were stupidly extremely reliant on Zlatan, especially in 07/08 & 08/09. Thank God he delivered.

I wouldn't call him the best modern Inter player by a mile though, especially considering that we won the Treble after he left.

I hate how when we talk about the best player we have to compare with the treble team. The treble team didn't win the treble because of some individual that was extra ordinary and won the games for us, the team worked their ass out for eachother.

For the argument sake I'll throw in Sneijder.

well, that is a good question. there was certainly plenty of class in him, and he was key to most of the national titles he won, but he probably lacked something. he played for many of the most important sides of europe and never even reached a final of champions league.

he left his national team and sweden had its best world campaign in many years.

anyway, he was certainly great and almost a sentence when it came to national football.

19 Aug 18, 13:04
For me it's without question that he was world class. A top striker should really have a strike record of a goal every two games, and a world class striker has a record better than that which Zlatan very much has since he joined Inter. He scored goals in big games.

Firmino is right that he was missing something, which most definitely is the champions league. Bad timing and bad decisions is to blame for that. He left us and joined Barca and we all remember what happened that season. He later joined PSG where he never had a hope of winning the champions league, wasted his prime there when he should have joined Man United or Real Madrid at that point. It's hard to see how he would not have won it then.

Despite him playing for Barca and Milan, I still hold him in very high regard and consider him one of my favourite players in the time I've supported the club.

Talent-wise, he is world class, but there's one more rank above him. First you have the fat Ronaldo, Maradona and Ronaldinho, and then you have unique world class players like Ibrahimovic, C.Ronaldo, Messi, Kaka, Iniesta etc. Of course I'm only talking about attacking players.

Do you really consider Cristiano and Kaka in that category, talent-wise? I'd also doubt Iniesta's positon there but he's more suited to the spot than the other two. Effectiveness, yes. But the two didn't display a talent thing imo, that's something Recoba had but he was inconsistent as fuck so he wasn't efficient or often effective.

I think Zlatan was probably the best player in the world in the 2007-2009 period and he even missed a lot of games. Then it became Messi's world.

Also, please, FIF has a lot of respect for Maldini, for example. Something that can't be said about Buffon. Baselessly stating that Zanetti isn't a modest person is a showing of poor taste, inadequacy or an extremely lame attempt at trolling. Can you recall a statement he made or an action he took that disproves his unquestionable modesty and gentlemanship to back your theory with?

I would never even as a fierce rival fan do what they've done to him in his retirement game. Fucking idiots.
