According to team-mate Hakan Calhanoglu, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has no ego and has contributed a lot at AC Milan.
Ibrahimovic, 38, returned to Milan in January and had scored four goals in 10 games before the coronavirus pandemic ended the season. The striker is struggling with a calf injury ahead of the resumption of the Serie A season, with his unclear future.
But Calhanoglu was full of support for Ibrahimovic, who won Serie A and the Italiana Supercoppa during his first club spell.
Also recently fellow AC Milan team-mate Leo Duarte called out Ibrahimovic for praise after the Swede sustained a minor injury in training.
Zlatan will return this Diavolo campaign but his future in Milan is uncertain. Calhanoglu has reported that the veteran has helped get the best out of the new crop in San Siro.
“For Milan, he’s no new player. He’s a world star and a player with a lot of experience. He is a star of our kind. In all respects, he has contributed to us-with his experience, game ambition, mentality, helping on the pitch very well. Everybody sees vanity on the outside. I don’t think there’s any ego, he’s very approachable, very sympathetic, immediately joking, very pleasant to spend some time with, “Calhanoglu told beIN SPORTS.
Series A, suspended since March, is scheduled to restart on June 20 with Milan currently seventh in the league.
