AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels that Inter Milan are the strongest team in Serie A, at least on paper.
Inter have faced city rivals Milan on five occasions now this season.
In truth, the 1-0 scoreline didn’t really do justice to how one-sided the match had been.
Next up, the two derby rivals faced in a two-legged tie in the Champions League semifinals.
Inter won both legs. In the first, they beat Milan 2-0 with two early goals from Edin Dzeko and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Then, in the second, a second half goal by Lautaro Martinez sealed the win.
Looking back on the tie against Inter, Rossoneri striker Ibrahimovic stated that “Inter are the strongest team in Italy, at least on paper.”
“They have much more experience, and players who were more ready for that stage than Milan.”
“Which is not an excuse,” the 41-year-old noted. “There are no excuses.”
“Because then when you play eleven against eleven, you can always go for it. But they did better than us.”
And asked if he’ll be rooting for anyone in the final, Ibrahimovic replied that “I can’t root for anyone.”
“Because I play for Milan, and Inter are in the final. And I played for Man United, and City are in the final.”
“I just hope it’s a good match,” the striker added.
