Ibrahimovic angered by 'big feet' comment
Friday 17 September 2010
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has criticised Arrigo Sacchi after his comments following Wednesday night's 2-0 Champions League victory over Auxerre.
The towering frontman was at the double for his new club and former Rossoneri coach Sacchi suggested he would have not tucked his first goal away if it wasn't for his big feet, a comment that annoyed the Sweden international.
He responded by saying: "Sacchi needs to learn how to shut up.
"He also seems jealous because he's talking too much, he needs to talk less about me on TV and in the newspapers.
"If he wants something he can come and see me about it. If you don't like the way I play, don't come and watch me."
Elsewhere in Italy, Roma legend Francesco Totti has criticised the club's management for their defensive display in Wednesday's 2-0 Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich.
The Romans fell to two late efforts at Allianz Arena and the veteran front man was unhappy that they didn't adopt a more attacking formation.
"We defended for the entire game, not even having a shot on goal," he said.
"You can't play this way. We faced a great team. But now we must improve to get back to being protagonists in Italy and in Europe."
