Ibrahimovic slammed by bitter rival for acting like 18-year-old in ‘he’s 40’ dig

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been blasted for acting childish by his ex-teammate Hakan Calhanoglu – who also claims that Ibrahimovic 'didn't contribute' to AC Milan's Scudetto success this year.

Calhanoglu and Ibrahimovic played together at Milan before the Turkish midfielder was lured to Inter Milan last summer. The 28-year-old made the switch to try and win the Scudetto; but ironically, it was his old team who won the Serie A crown and secured bragging rights this year.

During the celebrations, Ibrahimovic was seen leading an insulting chant towards Calhanoglu, as well as waving around an inflatable doll with his ex-teammates shirt. The Inter star has hit out at Ibrahimovic's actions – and claimed that the 40-year-old star was acting like a teenager.

He told Tivibu Spor, via Football Italia: “He is a 40-year-old man, not 18, so I wouldn’t do that sort of thing at his age. He just likes being the centre of attention. He didn’t contribute to the Scudetto this season, he barely played, but will do everything to be the focus anyway.

“Besides, he is the one who always calls me up, asks me to go out to dinner or for a motorbike ride. He wrote about me in his book too. He had to write something, or it would’ve been blank pages. It’s best not to bother, honestly.”

Calhanoglu saw his old side come up short in the race for the domestic crown to their bitter rivals, but the midfield maestro insisted that he had no regrets over his controversial decision to join Inter.

He added: “It was very difficult, as it was the same city and different colours, but I worked hard and knew this was my opportunity to join the reigning champions of Italy.

"Then when the team I joined didn’t win the Scudetto and my old club did, people acted like it was my fault. I am very happy at Inter, though, and the support of the fans is very helpful.

"I played at Milan for four years, but nobody ever chanted my name in the stands, whereas it happens every time I just warm up for Inter.”
