It was stupid, but I did it to make him understand: ‘You don’t fucking do that. You don’t have the balls to do it against me. But I’m going to show you what happens if you do it to me. ‘ That’s why I did it ”, assures the tall player to the English newspaper.
“Did Azpilicueta say something to you after the game?” Asked the journalist. ” What can you say? He won’t tell me, but he will tell my player, who won’t do anything because he’s too good. It wasn’t a good thing of me, but I still did it. That’s how I am. I’m not ashamed to say it, ” the attacker replied.
Ibrahimovic He saw the yellow for that action, a card that will have consequences, since he will lose the first playoff match that Sweden he will play in March to be able to go to the World Cup.

It attacks the one who can do something. It’s too easy to mess with my teammates, who are 20 years old and very good guys. I hope you understand it now, ” he insists.
