Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to his time at Manchester United in his latest autobiography. The Swede does not mince his words with regard to the Red Devils club.
In his latest autobiography, Zlatan Ibrahimovic shared his disappointment with Manchester United. The striker does not consider the Mancunian club to be great: “One thing surprised me: everyone considers United to be a top club, one of the richest and most powerful in the world and from the outside it’s hard not to believe it. But once there, I found a little closed mentality”he wrote.
“Such a thing would never happen in Italy”
The former Parisian gave an example: “One day, I was at the hotel with the team before a match. I was thirsty so I opened the mini-bar and drank fruit juice, says Ibrahimovic in his autobiography. We played and then went home. Some time has passed. My payslip is coming. Normally I don’t watch it. I only do it at the end of the year to see what comes in and what comes out. But this time, I don’t know why, I was curious and realized that they took 1 pound (1.14 euro) from my monthly salary. The team manager looked over and said, ‘That was the fruit juice from the mini bar. Here, if you order something, you have to pay.’ I didn’t go to the hotel on my own initiative, Ibrahimovic gets carried away in his book. I was not on vacation. It was my workplace. I was there for Manchester. If I have to play and I’m thirsty, I have to drink. I can’t go to the field dehydrated. Such a thing would never happen in Italy. It’s the details that make the difference and earn the respect of the players.”he added.
41-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still under contract with AC Milan. The Malmö native has taken part in 53 games for Manchester United in all competitions. The player also scored 29 goals and provided 10 assists.
